Dover is a little town and an important ferry port. Between Dover and Calais in France, the (Ärmelkanal) English Channel is only 34 km wide. To cross the channel by ferry (hier:dauert) takes only about 90 minutes. From the ferry you have a wonderful view of the famous (Kreidefelsen) chalk cliffs – the White Cliffs of Dover.
Near the ferry port, there is a castle from the 12th (Jahrhundert) century. From the castle you can see as far as Calais if the weather is good.
