More About Dover

Dover is the town in Kent which is geographically closest to the continent and, as the world's busiest ferry port, many justifiably describe as 'the gateway to England'.

The Straits of Dover have served as both Britain’s frontline and her gateway for many thousands of years. Today Dover is a major port town facing into the English Channel and, at just 21 miles from the French port of Calais, it is the closest port to continental Europe on mainland Britain. It is most famous for its white chalk cliffs which have been celebrated in song.

The Port of Dover is one of Europe's largest passenger ports and the nearest English port to France at just 21 miles. With millions of passengers, cars, trucks, motorcycles and buses passing through the Port of Dover on cross channel ferries each year, it's no wonder we're known as the 'gateway to Europe'.

Visitor Attractions in Dover

The Straits of Dover have served as both Britain’s frontline and her gateway for many thousands of years. This goes some way to explaining why this region in Kent has more than its fair share of castles, stately homes and museums than any other coastal region in the UK.

Despite being a busy port Dover has many places of historical interest worth visiting. The Old Lighthouse which is purported to be one of the most well preserved Roman buildings in Europe and the 'Roman Painted House' full of murals and ornate decorations on Priory Street are worth investigating, and Dover Castle is also well worth a visit affording amazing views of the town, the coastline and even the hills of Calais on a clear day. Alternatively take a walk along one of the pebbled beaches and admire 'The White Cliffs' made famous by the singer Dame Vera Lynn as a tonic for homesick soldiers' souls in the second world war.

White Cliffs of Dover
The world-famous, majestic white cliffs of Dover, which for centuries have played a key role in our history as Britain’s ‘front line’, now provide a welcoming sight for many millions of people. The cliffs are popuplar with tourists to Dover and offer the opportunity for wonderful walks and superb views out towards the English Channel. Or you may simply choose to simply gaze at them from the beach.

Dover Castle
Sitting proudly atop the White Cliffs of Dover and overlooking the busy ferry port, Dover Castle has a long and eventful history. The site of Dover Castle has been of vital importance since the Iron Age with the first castle at Dover most likely an Anglo-Saxon fortress until the arrival of William the Conqueror when its existing fortifications were improved.

Explore the 'Garden of England'
Kent is known as the Garden of England for its rich farming and hopmaking heritage. Kent stretches from Dover's White Cliffs Country to medieval Canterbury in the east, elegant, Tunbridge Wells to the west and the historic Medway towns to the north. In between Kent has over 300,000 listed historic buildings, miles of idyllic countryside and winding lanes, and every now and then, the county's unique white-tipped oast houses.
