About Dover

Dover is a town in Kent, England most known for its port and famous white chalk cliffs. Its closeness to mainland Europe makes it one of the United Kingdoms busiest ports with over 18 million passengers a year. There are regular ferry services from Dover to Calais and Dunkerque in France

The name of Dover gets its origin from the Ancient British word dubra meaning 'the waters'. The Romans called their settlement Dubris, this later become Dofras and then Doferum. By the 17th century it has become known as Douer and had various other names such as Dovor and Dower before finally settling to its present day name in the 19th century.

In 1992 a 3,000 year old wooden boat was discoverd during roadworks near Dover harbour. It is the worlds oldest seagoing vessels ever recovered and is currently on display in the Dover Museum.

Today there are many tourist attractions in and around Dover, the most noticeable being the White Cliffs and Dover Castle. As well as these there are many other historic house, museums, gardens and nature reserves.
