Millions of tourists visit Dover every year and it's easy to see why. Symbolic to Britain, Dover has a wealth of history combined with stunning scenery. So why not arrange car hire in Dover and get out and explore?

There is plenty to see and do during your stay in Dover, including visiting the imposing 14th century castle. There are boat trips around the White Cliffs as well as museums to keep you entertained, making for a memorable trip...


If you choose to hire a car in Dover, be sure to book in advance by using our search gadget to the left. You can pick up your rental car from convenient downtown locations or even from the port if you're coming over from France on the ferry. You'll then be free to explore the area at your own pace.

On top of most tourists' list when they plan a visit to Dover are the famous White Cliffs. Used for defence during both World Wars, the iconic White Cliffs of Dover stand tall, facing the English Channel with views of the French coast. 

The best view of the cliffs is from the coastal path beginning at the Langdon Cliffs and heading towards the South Foreland Lighthouse. Walk along the cliff tops and appreciate the uninterrupted views, as well as spot wildlife in their natural habitats.

Dover Castle sits above the famous cliffs and has protected Britain from the enemy for 20 centuries. Secret wartime tunnels, the Great Tower and exhibitions make visiting the castle an interesting and fun day out. 

Continuing with history, the Dover Museum and Bronze Age Boat Gallery showcases models and relics from pre-historic Dover up to the 20th century.

If you're after some retail therapy, then head to Dover's De Bradelei Wharf Designer Outlet where you can pick up some bargain designer clothes. And if you want to relax and indulge after a hard day's shopping, Dover has many bars and restaurants to take your fancy.

Active types should head to Dover Sea Sports Centre where you can take part in dinghy sailing, powerboating, windsurfing and more. There are also plenty of opportunities to fish and take boat trips around the harbour.
