We opted to walk to the foreshore via the path, and return to the car park via the sea wall, about 2.3km. The path takes you to a pebble and rock-pool beach, so children can paddle and hunt for sea creatures. The views of Dover...More

Amazing views, on sunny days all the way to France (Calais). Easy to reach from the M2 (direct access) and access to a small pebbles beach.

Unusual and surprising place accessed by a single lane tunnel (traffic light controlled) downhill through the cliff and emerging onto the Hoe created from the spoil of the Channel Tunnel. Parking charges apply, but worthwhile for views, walks, fresh air, visitor centre with refreshments and...More
