The White Cliffs of Dover is managed by The National Trust. It is a site of special scientific interest (SSSI) and the interpretation boards provide information about the rare flora and fauna that can only be found across this chalk grassland.
The White Cliffs of Dover are an official Icon of Britain and have been a sign of hope and freedom for centuries and have a fascinating military and penal history.
On arrival, you can find a wheelchair-friendly all-weather footpath that leads to an iconic viewpoint of the cliffs. Further along the coastal path you can discover Fan Bay Deep Shelter and South Foreland Lighthouse (subject to opening times).
The White Cliffs are open to visitors all year around, but the peak season is from April to November. Check the White Cliffs website ahead of your visit for opening times and any notices that could affect your day.
There is a good range of facilities on site, including a visitor centre, shop, and café, and picnic area. The marked and unmarked trails that zig zag across the cliff tops provide an opportunity for a bracing and exhilarating walk with unrivalled views of the busy English Channel and the French coast.
Wheelchair loan is available on request, and the park has designated parking and toilets, a fully accessible Visitor Centre, and a hard surface path through the car park to a viewing point 50 yards away. Recent improvements have been made to the pathways to make them more accessible.
The National Trust provides free parking to members but charges apply to other visitors. The opening times vary throughout the year.
Easy access information
This park and open space contains uneven trails, un-surfaced or narrow pathways. Also, there are width restricting features, such as stiles and narrow gaps making it difficult for visitors with pushchairs and/or wheelchairs to access some parts of the site.
