Dover Travel Guide


The busy passenger port of Dover has for centuries been Britain's gateway to Europe and is known for the famous white cliffs. The town itself is, sadly, not a pretty place; the savage bombardments of World War II and the shortsightedness of postwar developers left the city center in something of a mess. Mostly Dover town is a place you go through to get to the ferry. However, there are a couple of notable exceptions, including the Roman-era legacy of a lighthouse adjoining a stout Anglo-Saxon church.
