Dover Castle, Kent - one of the best castles I have visited and so much history.....used through WWII for many different purposes......there are 4 miles of underground tunnels that were used as a hospital during WWII.....built on the White Cliffs of Dover
White Cliffs of Dover. Our tips for 25 fun things to do in England: Get there via Southeastern train from Kings Cross, 2 hours from £40 return. Have a bite at the adorable Pines Garden Tea Room. Make sure to see Deal Castle. Available to explore top to bottom, the castle also links to a cycling path that runs straight to the seaside. Grab a pint at Rack of Ale, Dover's first micro pub. Careful though, this quirky haunt enforces a phones off policy!
"This was our finest hour" by Pat Keely, June 1940 or later. A strongly coloured war effort poster depicting an oversized British soldier standing in defence of the white cliffs of Dover. The slogan ‘This was our finest hour' is taken from Churchill's speech to the House of Commons on 18 June 1940.
2. Plumpton to Eastbourne "The direct train from London Victoria takes less than an hour to reach the East Sussex village of Plumpton," encourages Sarah Baxter. "From here, follow the rolling South Downs Way for around 25 miles to Eastbourne, via Saxon Lewes, the Cuckmere River and the Seven Sisters chalk cliffs, overnighting at Alfriston youth hostel en route."
