Location information for Dover

Dover is one of the busiest cross-channel ports in England because it is located near the French port of Calais. This is also why it constantly plays host to thousands of travellers each year particularly during the summer months. This tourist destination is located in Kent on the Southern coast of England. Travellers usually arrange for cheap car hire in Dover to easily get to the nearby villages.

A car rental will not be necessary for touring the town centre, however, as this area is compact enough for leisurely walks. Some of the most popular attractions include the Dover Museum, which features an extensive collection of artefacts such as the Bronze Age Boat, the oldest seagoing boat in the world. From the museum, visit the Dover Town Hall, the largest function hall in the town. It is a venue for a number of public and private events happening all year round.

The white cliffs of Dover are, without a doubt, the town's main attraction. The cliffs are made of chalk and are the reason why Britain was nicknamed 'Albion.' While you're in town, make sure to visit the Dover Castle as well. The structure was built during the Norman times and is well known for being a castle that fairy tales are made of with its medieval period lighthouse and keep.

After spending the day sightseeing, treat your palate to variety of cuisines served in the many restaurants all over Dover. Shopping opportunities are mostly located around Castle Street and the Market Square. Carlton Shopping Centre on High Street is also worth a visit.

Outside town, there are a lot of interesting villages that are worth arranging car hire in Dover for. Day trips to the surrounding countryside and places of interest such as the Gazen Salts are definitely in order while you're in the area.
