Setting sail from Dover

White Cliffs Country is a fascinating region, one packed with history and natural beauty. We think there is no sight like that of the stunning cliffs rising from the sea, topped by the fortifications of Dover Castle, and surrounded by lush green countryside. But the nearby area is also packed with charm, and not so further afield are captivating pretty villages, fascinating towns such as Sandwich (one of the original Cinque ports), and of course Kent's glory, Canterbury with its magnificent cathedral. A final thought must go to the many castles including Deal, Walmer and the magnificently photogenic Leeds Castle.

Our tip

You will be amazed how much there is to see and do, so drive down early, pick a base such as Canterbury to explore, and join your cruise completely relaxed.

Arriving in Dover

Don't miss

Perhaps our favourite restaurant in the South is The Sportsman at Seasalter, an extraordinary isolated pub on the bleak estuary coast. A Michelin Star, fantastic food and astonishing value.

Ways to make it better
Walletts Court, Kent

Extend your stay in Kent

We love historic Walletts Court, just ten minutes outside Dover but feels like another world – cosy, welcoming, and great food too.

Seals on the beach in Kent

Our recommended private tour

An extraordinary trip up the coast by RIB to the mouth of the Stour River and the orange seals basking on the mudflats.
