The closest point of mainland UK to continental Europe, Dover has been inhabited for several thousand years and always played an important role for commuting across the English Channel. Today a highly popular destination for tourists and one of the busiest passenger ports in the world, Dover offers visitors a wide range of attractions and activities, not to mention stunning scenery.
With plenty to see and do, and great day trip options available for travellers, Dover is the perfect destination to begin your holiday in the UK and the ideal place to collect your rental car.
You can collect your car rental in Dover as soon as you arrive by ferry from Europe. On your approach to Dover, be sure to keep an eye out for the white cliffs along the coast for which the area is famous. Comprised of stunning white chalk, the cliffs reach heights of over 100m and on clear days can be seen from France. Once you have collected your hire car in Dover, a drive out to the cliffs to enjoy the views from the English side is highly recommended.
Perched high up on the famous white cliffs overlooking the port, you will find Dover Castle, an impressive structure built in the 12th century and preserved in excellent condition. Drive your hire car up to the castle, and see the area from high above, a great view of the coastline and the town itself. Guided tours of the castle are available, and also highly recommended are tours of the many tunnels and labyrinths found within the cliffs themselves.
Dover’s location makes it the ideal place to head off and do some touring with your rental car. You can follow the coast in either direction along some great scenic routes, or even take a day trip up to London and explore the sites there.
