32. White Cliffs of Dover

There can be no doubting that the White Cliffs of Dover are one this country’s most spectacular natural features. These high chalk cliffs look out onto the English Channel, giving far-reaching views towards the French coast.

They have been a sign of hope and freedom for centuries and millions of people wonder at them every year as they cross the Channel. Thousands more now enjoy their special appeal through the seasons by taking the cliff top paths and seeing the rare flora and fauna.

As such an iconic feature of the Kent Downs landscape, the White Cliffs can get busy during school holidays and on weekends; it’s best to plan a trip during the quieter months of October to May, or on weekdays.
