Dover is a large ferry port town in Kent. It is situated at the closest point between France and England with Calais being just 21 miles away across the English Channel.
The White Cliffs of Dover are the first thing that most people see when approaching England from the sea. These famous chalk cliffs overlook the harbour and stretch for some miles along the coast.
The Port of Dover benefits from tourism although it is more of a transit town than a holiday destination in its own right. Dover has an impressive castle and the white cliffs of Dover house a labrinth of military tunnels used in the second world war.
