    ‘There’ll be bluebirds over the White Cliffs of Dover,’ is the Vera Lynn refrain that will echo in your mind as you explore one of England’s most iconic landmarks.The trail heads east from Sandwich to join the coastline at Sandwich Bay. You then follow the England Coast Path national trail south past Deal, Walmer, Kingsdown, and St Margaret’s Bay.After South Foreland Lighthouse, you step onto the famous White Cliffs of Dover, an iconic sight for people arriving on the southern shores of England for millennia. Standing at 350 feet (107 metres) tall, the white cliffs afford stunning views out to sea and over the rolling chalk landscape. On a clear day, you can see France.This stage finishes in the port town of Dover, which has an excellent range of accommodation, places for food and drink, shops, and other attractions.
