DOVER HERITAGE WALKS - Route 1 Town Centre

 

 

Town Centre from Market Square, meeting at the Visitor Information Centre.  This is a circular town walk, all on flat ground, and will take approx 90 minutes.  Your local guide will tell you the history and stories of the town as you wander through, giving you plenty of photo opportunities.

 

 

DOVER HERITAGE WALKS -  Route 2 Dover Harbour and seafront.

 

 

Town Centre, meeting at the Visitor Information Centre, proceeding to the seafront to take in the magnificent promenade, whilst listening to stories of Dover's maritime history and stories of the people who made Dover great.  The walk will take approx 90 minutes, is all on the flat,  and there are plenty of seats and far too many photo opportunities !

 

 

DOVER HERITAGE WALKS -  Route 3.  The White Cliffs.

 

Town Centre, meeting at the Visitor Information Centre, proceeding to the seafront and up on to the White Cliffs. The path up to the cliffs is steep but manageable with a few steps. The view at the top, taking in the English Channel, the seafront and the working - and very busy - ferry port is well worth a 20 minute climb.  Your guide will take it slowly and at the top, tell you some of the stories of the cliffs, including, of course, the James Bond connection. There is a Visitor Centre, run by the National Trust, so you can sit down and enjoy a lovely cuppa before either returning to Dover, or going on over the cliffs to the South Foreland Lighthouse and St. Margaret's Bay. 

 

 

DOVER HERITAGE WALKS -  Route 4.   Walmer Castle. Walk under development.

 

Town Centre, meeting at the Visitor Information Centre, proceeding to the bus station.  This will take about 3-4 hours, including the journey but is well worth a visit.  The Castle is one of a defensive chain, built by Henry VIII to prevent invasion. Deal Castle remains very much a defensive property, whereas Walmer Castle is also a stately home, used as the grace and favour home of the Lord Warden of the Cinque Ports. Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother spent a week there every year and the Duke of Wellington made it his permanent home.  Run by English Heritage, there is lots to see, including a beautiful garden.
