The opulent interiors of King Henry II's Dover Castle have been recreated by English Heritage in a £2.45m project lasting two years.

It follows extensive research by historians who worked closely with artists and craftspeople, and reveals the castle's function as both a fortress and a royal seat.

The BBC's David Sillito gives us a tour.
