Dover is the gateway to England and home to attractions such
as Dover Castle and the Bronze Age boat, besides the White Cliffs.
In the past years, an average of 3.4 million people chose
Dover for a day trip and 500,000 people chose to stay overnight as well.

destination because there are plenty of things to do for a visitor here.
