Walk the White Cliffs of Dover: England Coast’s new path

 

A new stretch of the England Coast Path which takes in the White Cliffs of Dover and the place Julius Caesar landed in Britain has been launched.

The walk along the White Cliffs of Dover is one of our favourites and its great to see from this article at travel.aol.co.uk¬†that this is now part of the England Coast Path. This stretch provides wonderful views of the Port of Dover, the¬†English Channel and, on a clear day, its possible to see across the channel to France. Parking is available at the National Trust carpark, just beyond Dover Castle, where you’ll find a cafe, toilets and information on the site.

A new wheelchair friendly footpath with resting points has been built since our last visit a few years ago. This is ideal for anyone just wanting a short walk to see the famous chalk cliffs and take in the surrounding landscape. There’s always plenty going on to watch in the port below too.

For the more energetic, it’s about an hours walk to South Foreland Lighthouse for a tour and lunch at the tea room, before either returning or carrying on along the path.
