I've wanted to see the White Cliffs of Dover ever since I read Matthew Arnold's "Dover Beach" many years ago. Nothing I imagined compared to the reality of the place. 3.50 pounds lets you park all day. Wear comfortable walking shoes and sunscreen, be sure to take your camera, and be prepared for a wonderful experience! I had lots of great outings in Kent, but this walk topped them all! Sheer white cliffs drop from green heights into blue, blue water. The sun was intense on our day, but there was a nice breeze to cool us down. A two-mile hike brought us to the Victorian lighthouse, where there's a tea room with outdoor tables. At the little ice-cream shack across the way a variety of kites are available (free of charge!) for kids to fly. After rest and some ice-cream, we headed back along the trail with wildflowers blooming on either side for the butterflies to feast on and seagulls flying over our heads. It was the perfect way to spend a day.
