After visiting Dover Castle, we were able to catch a cab to see the White Cliffs. Our driver took us to the beach area to view the Cliffs. It was the perfect location to view the Cliffs.

As you approach Dover and the port you see this lovely beach and the harbour ahead. Makes for a good welcome to Dover.

Nice beachfront walk but there was nowhere to get an ice cream for the 3 year old who was with us. Ended up at Table Table in the Premier Inn but it was rather pricey.
