About the location


Whitfield 3.2 miles; Folkestone 8.2 miles; Canterbury 16.3 miles.

Sitting on the English Channel in Kent, South East England is the picturesque town and bustling ferry port of Dover. Dating back to the stone age and retaining a lot of its historic landmarks, whilst also enjoying the beauty of the South East coastline, it is unsurprising that Dover is a highly popular holiday destination. The town enjoys connections to France via its ferry port, however, Dover itself has plenty for visitors to rave about, including the fascinating Dover Museum & Bronze Age Boat Gallery, the breathtaking Dover Castle, the Western Heights of Dover with its marvellous fortifications, along with the famed Medieval Tunnels, to name a few. A walker's haven, Dover enjoys easy access to the winding trail along the dramatic White Cliffs of Dover, where the sights of the South Foreland Lighthouse, the Fan Bay Deep Shelter and St Margaret's Beach can be beheld, whilst also being within easy reach of the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, where further excursions await. Dover is also home to a shingle beach that stretches along the strait, where visitors can soak up the impressive views of the coastal panorama on a stroll with a canine companion. Visitors can additionally tour the delightful Kearsney Abbey and Russell Gardens, before finishing the day off in one of Dover's fantastic eateries that line the harbour. For fun inland, guests can travel to Ashford, Maidstone or Canterbury, or they can check out the wonderful locations of Samphire Hoe, Folkestone, Margate and Ramsgate which can be found further along the coast.
