As the shortest channel crossing between England and France, Dover has been a popular port for people who wish to explore mainland Europe. The iconic chalk cliffs have become known as the White cliffs of Dover, and can be seen for miles across the channel. Dover prides itself in its transport services and tourism, and has 3 museums; the main Dover Museum, the Dover Transport Museum and the Roman Painted House.

About Calais

Tax is lower on cigarettes and alcohol in Calais, which means mean English tourists flock there for the 'booze cruises'. There are large warehouses around the town in which you can take advantage of these cheap prices, most famously Eurocity.
