Dover


Hotels, B&B's and Self Catering in Dover

Famed for its iconic white cliffs, Dover is a coastal town and major port for ferries to Calais in France. Built to repel invasions from across the English Channel, magnificent medieval Dover Castle overlooks the town and houses extensive secret wartime tunnels. Wander the paths above the cliffs to the shores of St Margaret’s Bay Beach. On the way, see the National Trust’s South Foreland Lighthouse, which was the first lighthouse to use an electric light. Samphire Hoe Country Park has a wonderful perspective of the white cliff faces, and many people come here for walks and cycling, and to angle from the sea wall. Peregrine falcons can be seen flying over the cliffs, which also support rock pipits and house martins. Dover has some excellent museums alongside a fine selection of eateries, shops and pubs. The Banksy mural is a popular attraction found on York Street. Dover is also the finishing point for the North Downs Way, a 153-mile National Trail.
