We were in Dover for change over day. Not much there, but walked into the town and back. We also went to Portimao, which is an excellent, unspoilt port in The Algarve and thoroughly enjoyed our time there.

Stayed in Canterbury for two nights before the cruise. Had a driver pick us up in Canterbury, take us to Dover Castle, the White Cliffs, and a couple of other spots, and then deliver us to the dock.

Stayed at an B&B at St Margarets at Cliffe. Amazing family and seaside meal smiling at the French coast all along. This not a registered excursion.

We bought a city shuttle ticket for $8US each, which worked as a hop-on hop-off for the day. We walked around town for and hour or so and then took the shuttle up to the White Cliffs visitor center. A 10-20 minute walk gets to a great viewing area of the cliffs and the harbor. Then we got back on the shuttle for a ride to Dover Castle. This castle is extremely well done. Lots of rooms are set up to look similar to what they would have, including bedrooms, kitchen, dining hall, throne room, etc. When we were there it was a special weekend and there were lots of people dressed in WWII uniforms, with "camps" on the lawn. They were acting their parts as soldiers, nurses, photographer/reporter, etc. They were displaying all of their gear and had a number of cars, trucks, an airplane and lots of guns. All in all, Dover was very well done. Read Less

Taxis 8 pounds to the center of town, bus 6 pounds for RT ticket. Friendly volunteer welcome guide right at the bus stop. Went to the museum with the oldest known boat still in existence. Was given a map and did the historic walk downtown. Town overshadowed by the castle whenever you look up gives a feudal feeling to the whole experience. Highly recommend the castle tour, large castle grounds, a lot to see. Finished off at a bar called "The Mash Tun," by far our favorite bar of our whole trip. Friendly locals who were regulars having a pint and relaxing, were very welcoming to 2 random Americans who came in. Happy to talk with us and share stories, and you could feel the love and care the owners put into their bar. At the end of the day watching the white cliffs fade into the distance as the ship sales away, is an amazing sight. Read Less

I walked from Dover Priory rail station to the cruise terminal (2). It took about 30 minutes. Embarkation was smooth. I walked on with my one piece of carry-on size luggage.

Unfortunately, Dover was not giving its best impression.

Quite different from the town I used to visit 15 years ago. Read Less

We didn't spend anytime in Dover choosing instead to go to Canterbury. There we saw th cathedral, went for a punt on the river and had a lovely pub lunch. The shuttle bus to and from the town to the ship was very good.
