Guarding the Shores of England

Kent’s frontline country

The white cliffs of Dover have always been at the forefront of the defence of the realm. Roman coastal forts, Norman defensive castles and Tudor naval docklands have left their mark on this beautiful rolling countryside. Napoleon and two World Wars saw further fortification of the region once known as Hellfire corner.


Key Features

  • Travel to the coast where Juluis Ceasar invaded England over 2000 years ago and then take in the landing site of William the Conqueror and the Battlefield of Hastings where the Kingdom was lost and gained in an afternoon.
  • See the coastline of the Saxon Shore Forts and the Castles that were built to repel European invaders from the Vikings, to the Spanish Armada to Napoleon.
  • Tour the defences where Britain prepared to meet and defeat the German forces during the First and Second World Wars. These are still obvious features of the coastal landscape and tell the story of the Island Nation's constant battle against invasion.
