Description:

The White Cliffs of Dover

If you have ever travelled over by ferry to Dover then the White Cliffs of Dover will be the first thing you see. This is possibly one of the most beautiful views of Great Britain. They are even visible on a clear day from the French side.

The cliffs are stunning and reach up to 350 feet (110m) high. They glistening in the sunlight due to their composition of chalk and streaks of black flint. Stretching along the coast for eight miles, they spread east and west from the town of Dover in Kent, and part of them are now owned by the National Trust

St. Margaret’s at Cliffe

St. Margaret’s at Cliffe is a three-part village situated just off the coast road between Deal and Dover in Kent, England. Saint Margaret’s Bay lies along and below the cliffs here and is a great place to walk, enjoy beautiful views, watersports and there are plenty of rock pools to explore.

Many people swim the English Channel starting from here. There is a car park at the bay too. Along the beachfront, the kiosk offers tea and ice cream.

It is also located on the 160 mile Saxon Shore Way, and up on the cliff-top you can also join the 4.7 mile St Margaret’s Bay walk with even better views. The trail then leads on to the historic South Foreland Lighthouse.
