White Cliffs of Dover, Dover

4.7
#1 of 239 in Parks in Kent
The White Cliffs of Dover represent the most famous facet of the English coastline due to their proximity to Continental Europe, striking appearance, and role in forming a symbolic barrier to invasion. Bask in the view that for hundreds of years served as the first or last sight of England for travellers heading to or from Europe. If it’s a clear day, you can even view France from on top of the cliffs. Walk on one of the clearly marked paths or simply sit and watch the bustling port of Dover. If you want to seek shelter from the marine winds, browse the gift shop or enjoy a cup of tea in the cafe. Sturdy shoes are recommended for rambling on top of the cliffs as the chalk, to which the cliffs owe their white appearance, can become slippery if wet.

  • Amazing place, stunning view but have to watch out the weather. This place is super windy, if definitely not suggest to go on raining day.  more »
  • Beautiful spot and on a clear day you can see the coast of France... Try to go at low tide so you can have a walk along the coast and get close to the cliffs.  more »
  • We had an awesome time here up on the cliffs. It's a 15 minute drive from the Harbour. The have a nice visitors center where you can have a drink. And enough tracks to walk. Unfortunately the Fan Bay ...  more »

  • Excellent park to stroll and hike through. Many good spots for photography. On a clear day you can see France. If traveling without a car, recommend prebooking a taxi as there are not a lot of options.
  • A very good place to hangout and it's just 2 hours away from London. It's very Peaceful and Nature at it's best.
  • Very cool site. Definitely dangerous as you can get right up to the edge, but that's part of the fun.
  • Beautiful place to visit. Went for a long walk, saw horses, great scenery. Felt like in the movie.
  • This place is amazing. In rainy days it gets muddy so wear suitable shoes and dress.
