Dover Overview

Dover is a major port on the south-east coast of England. Situated in the county of Kent, it faces Calais, France 22 miles across the English Channel. It has a population of over 40,000.

Dover is famous for its white cliffs, which are made of chalk. The cliffs gave Britain its nickname of Albion, meaning "white". The national trust owns much of the cliffside land and offers free walking trails along them.

Dover Castle was built centuries ago and has a history of usage from the Naploeonic wars right through to World War II. The castle has been well maintained due to its recent service and is one of the main tourist attractions of the areas.
