White Cliffs of Dover

About

Magnificent coastal site overlooking the English Channel

There can be no doubt that the White Cliffs of Dover are one of this country's most spectacular natural features. They are an official Icon of Britain and have been a sign of hope and freedom for centuries.

You can appreciate their beauty and enjoy their special appeal through the seasons by taking one of the dramatic cliff-top walks offering unrivalled views of the busy English Channel and the French coast.

While you're here, learn more about the fascinating military and penal history of the White Cliffs and savour the rare flora and fauna that can only be found across this chalk grassland.
