The view was spectacular. Must walk to the top. Lots of photo ops. Must walk up a lot of steps to get to the top. Take your time. Town was nice, lots of shops.

It is a nice walk up, good views, but not different from many other places nearby. Just more tourists.

As inhabitants of continental Europe, we know the "white cliffs of Dover" very well. Maybe less well known, but easily understandable, is that the Earth's surface continues in the same way across the English Channel, and that France presents itself with an extensive range of chalkstone cliffs, such as Les 2 Caps (Blanc Nez and Gris Nez), and, beyond the...
