The gateway to Europe with Britain’s history at its heart
Dover is one of the more affordable towns in Kent and so attracts families and first-time buyers looking to put down roots.
Dover to London St Pancras takes just over an hour on the fast line and 2 hours 5 minutes on the slow line to London Victoria. By car, the 78-mile journey takes just shy of 2 hours. When it comes to road links the A20 and A2 provide connections to north Thanet or further south to Folkstone as well as access to the M20.
There’s a mixture of good private, state and grammar schools for children of all ages to see them through education.
Dover has a range of properties that cater to all budgets. From spacious detached family homes with sea views to riverside cottages, period properties and many investment opportunities, take a look at the properties we have available.
What to do in Dover
Dover’s iconic white cliffs serve as a lovely spot for a blustery stroll on a dry day. If the weather is clear enough then you’ll be able to see straight across to France as you watch the boats float lazily across the channel.
Right on the edge of the Kent downs, you can easily access some beautiful and challenging (or easy!) walks within a few minutes’ drive.
There’s a lot of history in Dover with the iconic South Foreland Lighthouse, a heritage railway, roman villa, Cover Castle and transport museum too. However you want to indulge your cultural side, Dover has something to cater to it.
For a day on the water, the sea sports centre has a range of courses including powerboating, stand up paddleboarding and sailing.
After a day spent shopping or enjoying some watersports, you’ll be hankering for a bite to eat. Dover’s got plenty of fish and chip places for you to try and everyone’s got their favourite. Or, for more a meal out, there’s a range of Italians, Indians, Chinese and much more. Have a browse of TripAdvisor and start making your list of places to visit.
