White Cliffs of Dover

White Cliffs of Dover, Dover, Kent, England

The White Cliffs of Dover are cliffs that form part of the English coastline facing the Strait of Dover and France. The cliffs are part of the North Downs formation. The cliff face, which reaches up to 350 feet, owes its striking appearance to its composition of chalk accented by streaks of black flint. The cliffs stretch along the coastline for eight miles, spreading east and west from the town of Dover in the county of Kent, an ancient and still important English port.

Walking the White Cliffs of Dover, when it is gloriously sunny and the sea is calm and smooth as glass you can wander across the white cliffs and take in the breathtaking views across the English Channel, on the clearest of days you may even be able to see the buildings in France. With three miles of footpath to enjoy safely, bring your dog for a glorious walk along the cliffs.

There is also a wheelchair friendly footpath that leads to a viewing point, ideal for viewing the iconic cliffs.
