A lovely day, well done National Trust. Full of history and interest, ensure you arrive early to fully benefit from the day, visit the castle, the hospital and war room tunnels and much much more, plus enjoy a coffee and cake in the restaurant / cafe

The cliffs are a symbol of Britain and walking the cliffs is something special but the interesting point is that you do not see the full beauty of the cliffs from the hills on top.

If you are not prepared to walk to a long time then you will not be seeing much. We didn't have much time so paid per car and walked for about 10 mins, came back as we saw a pay below us but discovered we couldn't get to it, so saw a piece of the cliffs.

A wonderful walk along the cliffs towards the lighthouse and known as the Saxon Shore Way. Along the way wild horses can be seen ,the similar horses and ponies seen in the New Forest, also cattle there but haven't seen them maybe inland more. The Dover Patrol monument at the end of the walk of about one mile ish.

We walked from St. Margaret's at Cliff to Folkestone - long and heavy as we took the way over Shakespeare's Cliff and the Warren ... But it's gorgeous out there.

Whilst there are some great views to be had along the clifftop path, the cliffs themselves are perhaps best viewed from at sea. There was a strong wind on the day we visited, turning the conditions almost Arctic, and this certainly detracted from our enjoyment. The history related to the cliffs and their significance to returning servicemen, particularly during the... More
