Best vantage

The sweeping grandeur of the White Cliffs of Dover is best appreciated from the sea, including from the decks of the ferries that ply between England and France


The cliffs are composed of chalk that was formed from the accumulation of trillions and trillions of marine skeletons over eons of time (the land was once a seabed).


The White Cliffs of Dover are gradually eroding into the sea. Sometimes big hunks break off unexpectedly. Lighthouses have had to be relocated.
