Plan your journey from Dover Eastern Docks
Where countryside meets coast, the spectacular scenery surrounding Dover has plenty to seduce all who visit.
The famous white cliffs of Dover are one of England’s most iconic stretches of coastline. These tall, chalky cliffs overlook the English Channel, with unbeatable views stretching out towards France. To take in the spectacular sights, embark on a walk along the coastal path towards the Victorian South Foreland Lighthouse, which was the first in the world to start using an electric light.
The town of Dover itself offers plenty to entertain visitors. The market square is filled with shops selling trinkets and charms, while the busy marina is impressively grand. Spend an afternoon strolling the Victorian gardens of Royal Connaught Park or take a break from the hustle and bustle of the city in the centrally located Pencester Gardens. The ancient Dover Castle is the largest in England and keeps watch over the town below. A selection of maritime museums, including the Dover Museum (which boasts a Bronze Age ship dating back 3,600 years) continues the town’s heritage.
This portside city is where many travellers board the ferry joining England and France, but Dover offers a wealth to see and do for those keen to explore.

Beyond Dover Eastern Docks
Set deep in the south of the UK, Dover is the ideal starting point for discovering the striking coastline surrounding the town. With the luxury, comfort and ease of your Avis hire car, uncovering the delights of the area couldn’t be simpler.
Just under an hour’s drive via the M20 (or via the A20 and A259 for a more scenic coastal drive), the quaint town of Rye sits just a few kilometres from the sea. This Medieval maritime port teems with cobbled streets and secret passageways, boutique shops and independent cafes. Climb the tower of St Mary’s Parish Church and enjoy the views across the terracotta roofs of the town and Rye Harbour.
The hedonistic seaside town of Brighton is a mix of creativity, inspiration and excitement. Artists, musicians and fashionistas flock to the town to enjoy the city’s bohemian culture. North Laine (or “the Laines”) is full of cosy pubs, independent shops and cute cafes. The Brighton Pier and Dome are the city’s most iconic attractions. A two-hour drive west from Dover, Brighton’s seaside charm is well worth soaking up.
With your Avis hire car, there’s no easier way to discover the beauty of the towns that dot the UK’s southernmost coastline.
