About Dover Kent
Official Dover Tourist Information Number: 01304 205 108
This site is all about Dover in Kent. Dover is a busy port town on the southeast coast of Kent. Just 21 miles of English channel separate Dover from France. You can look across the Dover strait and see Calais on a clear day.
The iconic white cliffs of Dover are world famous but they aren’t Dover’s only claim to fame. Dover castle is another famous landmark. The Dover museum is home to a bronze age boat discovered in the town which is believed to be the oldest known sea going vessel in the world.
Dover has seen the arrival of invading armies across the centuries. Today the port of Dover is still very busy with freight ferries, passenger ferries and cruise liners.
Dover has also been the scene of many firsts: Bleriot’s cross channel flight, the world’s first ship-to-shore transmission and the first electric lighthouse.
There are plenty of reasons to visit Dover and the surrounding areas. Coastline, countryside, history, day trips to France and much more.
We’ll be adding more content to the site as fast as we can including where to eat & drink in Dover, places to visit and things to do in Dover and where to stay in Dover.
