Dover, England Cruises

The White Cliffs of Dover are an iconic natural landmark of southern England. These cliffs are made of white chalk, and have been the subject of songs and stories throughout the centuries. Dover itself is a historic destination with a rich and interesting past. Usually the first or last place you'll visit on your cruise, it's a peaceful Kent town located on the English Channel. Direct trains to London take approximately one hour.

Sightseeing in Dover

Attractions in Dover are, for the most part, either natural or historic. Beautiful green open spaces, landscaped gardens, castles and historic buildings are waiting to be discovered. The town is small enough to enjoy on foot, with various scenic coastal trails that are perfect for stretching your legs. Take time to visit any of Dover's attractions, as you won't be disappointed.

Dover Castle

By far the most impressive sight in the town. This castle stands on the cliff, with a network of tunnels cut through the chalk and stone below. Built in the 12th Century and adapted through the ages, it's Dover's best historic attraction.

Roman Painted House

This preserved Roman townhouse gives an insight into the lives of those that occupied the town for 400 years. You'll see mosaic fragments, and will also get to learn about the under-floor heating system that's installed in the house – something that's only just becoming popular again.

Kent Battle of Britain Museum

This interesting museum has more than 600 artefacts from the Battle of Britain, including parts of aircrafts shot down during the battle. Dover also has the Battle of Britain Memorial, with further planes on display.

Shopping in Dover

Dover isn't one of the UK's best shopping destinations. As it's relatively quiet, you won't find big shopping centres to explore. There are, however, some hidden gems and independent shops that are well worth visiting at De Bradelei Wharf. The town's main shopping area, it's a mix of boutique fashion shops, designer stores and independent retailers selling gifts, homewares, souvenirs and decorative items.

Eating Out in Dover

Rather than offering a wide selection of modern restaurants serving foods from all over the world, Dover is known for its peaceful cafes featuring al fresco seating, where you're assured high quality meals and a friendly, welcoming atmosphere. Pubs and inns serve hot meals including traditional British dishes, and enable you to enjoy a glass of wine or to sample the region's real ales as you dine.

If you are looking for a more formal restaurant, then you might prefer a visit to Wallett's Court. There, you can enjoy a three-course meal that's prepared using the finest local and seasonal ingredients including Kentish sauces and preserves to accompany meat and game, flavourful wild boar sausages, freshly caught seafood, seaweed and truffle. At Wallett's Court most desserts are prepared with seasonal local fruit, and you can enjoy a delicious afternoon tea with sandwiches, cakes, scones, a choice of teas and, if you're feeling extravagant, a glass of champagne to finish.
