Touring Dover, England

Touring Dover, England


ON YOUR OWN

The heart of Dover is the Market Square (immediately ahead when you leave the pedestrian subway), which has hosted markets or fairs since 1160. From here, there are fine views of the castle on the hill above. The square is home to the Dover Visitor Information Centre, and the building also hosts the Dover Museum and the Bronze Age Boat Exhibition. Part of the world’s oldest known seagoing boat, thought to be 3,500 years old, is on display, which was found during road construction in 1992. Admission is £4/£2.75. Head up Cannon Street, with the beautiful Church of St. Mary the Virgin on your right. There’s been a church on this site since 1100, and the current building has elements of the original. Turn left into New Street, and although it doesn’t look inviting, along here on the left is the Roman Painted House, one of the finest Roman homes on show in Britain, dating from 200 AD. It formed part of a large mansion or official hotel for travelers crossing the Channel. Admission is £3/£2. Walk back to the church and continue along Biggin Street. Turn left into Pencester Road, and explore Pencester Gardens on the right, a pleasant place to explore along the banks of the River Dour, which originally gave Dover its name. Head past the supermarket at the bottom and into Castle Street, home to some superb Victorian homes. Turn right, and you’ll make your way back to your starting point in Market Square. There is a bit of beach in the port, by De Bradeli Wharf, though it’s not much.
