One of the oldest Christian structures in Europe, the Cathedral was founded in the 6th century. It quickly became an important stop for pilgrims from around England. The Cathedral is large yet detailed and full of striking architecture. The stained glass windows are massive and spill coloured light across the various rooms. Vaulted ceilings overhead curve out from the tall stone columns along the main hall, hugging the space below. Explore the hidden corners to find the tombs of several well-known bishops and noblemen.
Let yourself be carried away by this ancestral monument.
Cliffs of Dover
The White Cliffs of Dover stand tall along a stretch of the English coastline that faces the Strait of Dover and France. They reach 110m and owe their white appearance to the chalk in the soil. On a clear day, if you are lucky, you can even see them from France! The Cliffs are synonymous with Great Britain around the world.
Every year thousands of people walk along the 13km of Cliffs that surround Dover. You will be captured by the ocean reaching out in all directions, and by the crisp white cliffs.
Calais Town Hall
At 74m tall the Belfry of Calais can be seen from kilometers away. The belfry is attached to the city hall, a brick and stone building built in the neo-flemish style. It was built between 1911 and 1925 to commemorate the merging of Calais and Saint Pierre in 1885. Today you can walk around the main square and explore the reception rooms.
Like many architectural achievements, the original Belfry was built by the town Lord in order to show off how rich they were to surrounding areas and to compete with another Lord.
