Things to do in Dover

With iconic White Cliffs, a dramatic castle, military museums, beaches and day trips to France – there’s a lot to love about this emblematic Kent town. Its famous White Cliffs, immortalised by Vera Lyn, are without doubt a spectacular natural phenomenon made of pure white limestone, and the views from them are breath-taking. Enjoy the scenery at the vintage style Mrs Knott’s Tearoom at the National Trust’s South Foreland Lighthouse.
