    Hello, great post but just wanted to say that that is not a picture of the White Cliffs of Dover, it is Beachy Head in Sussex. Dover is in Kent, 75 miles away from that spot. In the spirit of this post I would highly recommend visitors check out the Seven Sisters Country Park (East Sussex, nr Beach Head) for the best white cliff views. The area is often erroneously used to depict Dover in images and films because Dover is historically significant but the Seven Sisters are more picturesque. Case in point is Robin Hood Prince of Thieves: Costner was filmed at the Seven Sisters, purportedly Dover.
