Dover is a bustling town and port on England's Kentish coast. Known chiefly for its breathtaking White Cliffs, Dover has long been a naval stronghold and integral part of Britain's history. You can discover this history at Dover Castle, a cliff-top castle dating back as far as 1160. Built by William II, and involved in the Norman Conquest and Napoleonic Wars, the castle is a short scenic stroll from town. Included in your entry is access to the castle's underground tunnel system, famously used as the headquarters for Britain's "Operation Dynamo" during World War 2. Dover is a great base for walkers, with walking routes taking you through Kent's North Downs, or along the town's white chalk cliffs. Dover is also a popular ferry port for day trips to France, crossing the English Channel to Calais in 90 minutes. On a sunny day the views from Dover stretch across to Europe.
