Dover, England

Dover is a small seaside village with a huge history. It is also the main port for the ferries to France, Belgium and the Netherlands, as well as a cruise ship port. Dover dates back centuries and played a critical roll during WWII. Dover's small, but quaint village is a wonderful place to take in everything English.

Dover stands beneath the famous White Cliffs which are topped by its massive castle, and overlooks the Straits of Dover. It is an excellent place to watch the worlds busiest shipping lanes.

Dover has a wonderful historical district with a great pedestrian shopping street (Cannon Street). Shops are found along the main street and on the side streets that adjoin it. The best place to start is from Market Square close to the underpass that leads to the oceanfront. Other attractions include the Dover museum, St Mary’s Cathedral and the Secret War Time Tunnels.
