Ports

Dover is a port town in south east England, famous for its White Cliffs. Historically it was a very important port due to the proximity to France. Visit the majestic Dover Castle or relax on St. Margaret's Bay Beach. Don't miss the Dover Museum – it's free and full of exciting stories!

Southampton, on the shores of the Solent, is the largest port of England. The bustling town offers plenty of distractions, and is known (sometimes reviled) for its brutalist architecture. However, the city hosts a number of fine museums, the Tudor House, and long stretches of medieval walls. Also, the beautiful English countryside is just a short drive away. The yearly Southampton boat show in september should be on any Windseeker's calendar. And don't forget to visit the Isle of Wight!
