Dover is a town and major ferry port in the South East of England whose white cliffs are immortalised by Vera Lynn's war time classic, The White Cliffs of Dover. The chalk cliffs are now looked after by the National Trust, who offer guided tours of them. For many Brits, the white cliffs symbolise freedom and they are a key part of their national identity.
However, there is more to Dover than its cliffs, it is also home to St Edmund's Church the smallest church in Britain. Remarkably is still in regular use. The chapel was built in 1262 to serve pilgrims arriving in Dover who were travelling to Canterbury to worship at St Thomas Becket's shrine.
The town looks over to France, and a ferry from Dover to Calais takes about one hour. Dover gets its name from the river that runs through it, The Dour. About 30,000 people live on the town, which has a huge shipping industry.
