What You'll Get

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Pass By: Battle of Britain Memorial, New Dover Road Folkestone, Capel-le-Ferne CT18 7JJ England

On arrival in Dover we make a photo stop at the Battle of Britain Memorial. Sitting on top of the famous White Cliffs of Dover, the memorial offers stunning views across the English channel to France. A peaceful place, dedicated to the heroes who fought in the skies in the Battle of Britain in World War Two *Subject to opening times*

Stop At: Dover Castle, Castle Hill Road, Dover CT16 1HU England

Next stop will be at the impressive Dover Castle. While traveling, your host will talk to you about your destination -- beautiful Dover Castle! Built in the 12th century, the castle was known as the ‘lock and key to England’ due to its strategic location, wedged in the countryside between the capital and the coast.

After traveling for roughly two hours, we'll arrive at Dover Castle, where we'll spend roughly two hours exploring this incredible site independently. Highlights include the opulently furnished Great Tower, where members of King Henry VII’s royal court would meet, and the Secret Wartime Tunnels that were used in wars dating back to Napoleonic times. Perhaps soak up Dover Castle’s medieval grandeur on a walk around its immaculately kept gardens, or simply relax at the on-site café before returning to your coach where we continue to Dover Port. Your host will drop you off outside the Dover cruise terminal in time for your cruise.

If you do not wish to enter the castle, you will be taken for a short photo stop, before heading straight down to the terminal.
