What To Do

The main attraction here is Dover Castle which sits high atop the White Cliffs and overlooks the area below looking towards France.
What I also found is the site where Louis Bleriot landed in 1909 being the first person to cross the Channel in an airplane. It’s pretty spectacular as well.
