About Dover

Welcome to the towns of Dover, Deal and Sandwich, to ancient villages that have witnessed the passage of Kings and Queens, the famous and the infamous, and to the “iconic” White Cliffs famed throughout the world. With just 21 miles of sea between Dover and Calais, a day trip to France is a unique extra feature for our visitors, who can also enjoy a round or two of golf on our championship courses or visit our beautiful castles. The world famous majestic White Cliffs of Dover, which have for centuries played a key role in our history as Britain’s ‘frontline’ now provide a welcoming sight for many millions of people. Gaze at the cliffs from the beach, enjoy wonderful walks and superb views.
