The White Cliffs of Dover

The White Cliffs of Dover are an iconic image of the UK and are the closest part of England to France.

From the carpark above the port of Dover you can walk along the length of the cliffs, which takes about 45 minutes each way :)

It’s a nice walk in good weather, and when we were up there I was surprised how little wind there was….I was expecting it to be pretty windy as it’s so exposed to the sea ;>.>

The route is a bit up and down in places, but it’s a fairly easy walk overall, and the path is easy to follow.

The one drawback is that since you’re up on top of the cliffs it’s difficult to get a good clear view of the actual white cliffs themselves ^_^;

On the way back to the carpark there are really clear views of the busy port below, which just seems to be a constant flow of ferries going back and forth across to France.

At the far end of the cliffs is South Foreland Lighthouse, and the recently opened to the public Fan Bay Deep Shelter, which we also visited :)
