The White Cliffs of Dover are perhaps the biggest draw for tourists. It is the first sight when arriving at Dover Cruise Terminals and a magnificent iconic natural landmark.
Dover Castle overlooks the town and has long been regarded as one of the most important fortresses in England. It is also one of the best preserved and the on-site Secret Wartime Tunnels give a fascinating insight into the lives of soldiers during Operation Dynamo, the evacuation from Dunkerque, during the Second World War.
Dover Museum features the world's only Bronze Age Boat, discovered in Dover in the early 90's. The surrounding areas also feature a variety of attractions from the nearby South Foreland Lighthouse on top of the White Cliffs to the magnificent Samphire Hoe, a man-made nature reserve created during the construction of the Channel Tunnel.
Whether you are heading down the night before your cruise or have just arrived and looking to spend a few days in the town, there are plenty of accommodation options in Dover. From reliable chains such as Best Western and Premier Inn to the more personal B&B's, there is something to suit all tastes.
Best Western Dover Marina Hotel & Spa is located on the waterfront, overlooking the sea, and is ideally located between the Eastern and Western Docks. Premier Inn have three chains throughout Dover, one along Marine Parade close to the Dover Ferry Terminal, another further up the A2, close by Dover Castle and a third just off the A20 on the way to Dover and the Cruise Terminals.
Accommodation can also be found via the Hoteliers Group on www.stayindover.co.uk or through the Tourist Office, Market Square, Dover or Tel:+44 (0) 1304 205 108.
De Bradelei Wharf is the main designer retail outlet in Dover, a large discount store offering great prices on big brand names.
Located close to the waterfront, it has a maritime feel and is laid out as an open plan shopping centre selling ladies & mens clothing, shoes, bed linens, gifts, books, kitchen and general home ware.
Dover's town centre also has a variety of high street shops, the majority of which are located on Biggin Street. Shops include Argos, Boots, Peacocks, M&S, WH Smiths and many more.
Dover Walking Routes and Sport
Being home to the magnificent White Cliffs, Dover has a fantastic range of walking routes and sporting options for the more active visitor.
The White Cliffs themselves come under the stewardship of the National Trust and offer a host of walks along the top of the cliffs and surrounding areas. A Visitor Centre can be found upon arrival with walking maps, guides, cafe and useful facilities.
Dover's Western Heights compromises a series of forts and strongholds used to protect the country from invasion. Now they are a local nature reserve and offer some great walks with stunning views across the Channel. On the waterfront there is also Dover Sea Sports Centre, offering a range of sea sports including everything from windsurfing to power boating.
