Known throughout the world, the iconic White Cliffs are internationally recognised, so much so they were voted Britain’s most popular stretch of coastline. They have witnessed much action and invasions throughout centuries – the historic Dunkirk evacuation was even planned from within them. Today they provide a welcome sight to the millions of visitors who visit White Cliffs Country.
The White Cliffs of Dover are one of Britain's most instantly recognised natural landmarks. Rising out of the English Channel to over 300ft high in places, they are a dramatic and inspiring sight from the sea and provide superb views out across the Channel towards France. The cliffs stretch for 10 miles between Folkestone to the west and Walmer to the east.
