Dover White Cliffs

The White Cliffs of Dover are perhaps most famous as an iconic landmark. The white chalk face a symbol of home and war time defence, but they have so much more to offer; stunning views, a serene walk, a wealth of wildlife, an abundance of history and, most importantly, two tea rooms offering delicious treats.
