Backed by its famous White Cliffs, Dover is situated in Kent, on England's southeastern tip and is the UK's closest geographical
point to Continental Europe. Every day of the year, regular cross Channel ferries travel between the port, Calais and Dunkirk in
France, and Ostend in Belgium.
Visit fairy tale castles and imposing fortresses by the sea, explore a Roman house or see a real Bronze Age boat in a high-tech
gallery. For a different perspective, sail around the harbor on a boat tour, get a bird's eye view from an open top bus, or travel
back in time on an historic railway.
Dover is also a busy port for cruise shipping and a Mecca for pleasure boat owners.
