The White Cliffs of Dover are one of England’s most recognizable landmarks. The sheer cliffs of white chalk mark the closest part of England and reach up to 350 feet (110 m). The cliffs spread 10 miles east and west from the town of Dover
For centuries the cliffs of Dover have been a symbol of Englands defiant spirit, standing watch over the Channel. However the cliffs are slowly crumbling away due to erosion by waves, rain, wind and freezing. The cliffs retreat at an average rate of about half an inch a year. Bigger collapses take place occasionally, last time in 2012.
Dover Priory station is about 2½ miles away. There is an hourly high-speed train service from London St Pancras or slower services from London Victoria or London Charing Cross. The walk from the train station to the cliffs is about 40 minutes. Also taxis available at the station.
The Dover Cliffs visitor center is easy to find and has paid parking for 300 cars next to the visitor centre.
