The White Cliffs of Dover stand as a symbol of England's legendary strength and character. These cliffs were the first sign of home for British soldiers returning from the battlefields of WWII. Dover is a post-war city whose beauty lies in the history and pride that lives beneath her terrain. Among Dover's attractions are the massive Dover Castle and the unique archaeological site of the Roman Painted House, uncovered 28 feet underground by a road crew in 1970. Dover Castle, easily the most iconic and enduring attraction of this clifftop city, dates back some 2,000 years. So much history passed through the stone walls of this ancient castle, the best way to relive it is through the wonderful, immersive tours that are offered on your Dover cruise. You will have the opportunity to see the secret underground tunnels the English army used to conduct operations, as well as to evacuate many troops from the beaches of Dunkirk. Take in the Old-English opulence on a tour of Leeds Castle, whose stately grounds and grand chambers have played host to six medieval Queens. You’ll also find plenty of scrumptious and hearty English dining options fit for a royal feast, from Steak and Ale Pies to plenty of international choices, including Greek, Mexican, Italian, and French restaurants.
