Money obviously comes first with the Dover Port authority. They have closed this very popular attraction in favour of building a container terminal. Such a shame as it provided lovely walks to the café at the end and also was great for fishing. Shame on...More

Pulled alongside this Pier recently on an unscheduled stop whilst cruising on the Crown Princess. Great views of the Port, Town and Ships.

Get in quick before the pier closes for regeneration soon. The pier (free to access) is a 600 metre walkway out to a lighthouse and super little café at its end. The walk in the autumn months can only be described as "bracing" but it...More
