One of the world’s most iconic images is that of the White Cliffs of Dover. The subject of countless songs, poems and stories, the breathtaking views across the English Channel have attracted visitors for hundreds of years. A stroll along the cliff top makes for a memorable trip, with trails to follow and children’s activities en route.
The spectacular Dover Castle makes a great day out; with an interactive tour of the chambers and a walk through the secret wartime tunnels. Packed with activities to keep the kids entertained, actors in themed costumes are on-hand to give you a glimpse into the castle life ten centuries ago.
