The White Cliffs of Dover are probably the most famous sight in Great Britain. On a clear day, you can even see them from France. For many entering the UK on a ferry from Continental Europe, it is the first picture of Britain they see.
The cliffs reach up to 350 feet (110m) high. The sparkling white is down to its composition of chalk and streaks of black flint. The cliffs actually run along the coast for eight miles east and west from the town of Dover in Kent, and part of them are now owned by the National Trust.
These photos are from St Margaret’s at Cliffe, a three-part coastal village located between Deal and Dover. St Margaret’s Bay lies along and below the cliffs here and is a great location for photographing these beautiful white cliffs. If you enjoy hiking then you can take the circular Saint Margaret’s Bay Walk.
