Dover

Dover Marina, Taken on a hot summer's day.

The Port of Dover, situated on the South East tip of England and in close proximity to the Continent, has always been of importance to cross-Channel traffic and the history and origins of the Port can be traced right back to Roman times. The deep cleft in the hills formed in prehistoric times by the River Dour, has always given protection to the small ships plying across the Strait.

Mural by Banksy in Dover

A large mural by street artist Banksy of a workman chipping away at one of the 12 stars on the European flag has appeared on the side of a building in Dover.

The artwork close to the Kent port town’s ferry terminal and ‘Welcome to Dover’ sign features a workman on a ladder removing one of the bright yellow stars. His mural which makes reference to the UK leaving the European Union was reportedly valued at £1 million.

The White Cliffs of Dover are cliffs that form part of the English coastline facing the Strait of Dover and France. The cliffs are part of the North Downs formation. The cliff face, which reaches up to 350 feet (110 m), owes its striking appearance to its composition of chalk accented by streaks of black flint. The cliffs stretch along the coastline for eight miles (13 km), spreading east and west from the town of Dover in the county of Kent, an ancient and still important English port.
