What to see in Dover

Dover has a long and rich history, which is evident in its stellar attractions. Located 11 miles north of Dover, the Deal Castle, completed in 1540 for Henry VIII, is one of the most famous English fortifications. Explore this castle and its expansive grounds. Guests can also visit the resort town of Deal, a historic trade and military post with great biking and walking trails. The South Foreland Lighthouse is a Victorian-era landmark with a captivating story to tell. This lighthouse was the first ever to use electric light in 1859, and later became part of experiments that received the first ship-to-shore message.

The Richborough Roman Fort and Amphitheatre, an English Heritage site near Ramsgate, is a physical reminder of the era of Roman rule in the area. The remains of the concrete wall and defensive tunnels are worth exploring, and you can make a fun boat trip to access the fort like the Romans once did. Sitting about 2 miles west of Dover, Samphire Hoe Country Park is a nature reserve constructed from chalk excavated during construction of the Channel Tunnel. Most visitors stop at Samphire Hoe for a stroll along its walking trail, or for activities such as angling and birdwatching.
