How do I get to the White Cliffs from Dover Priory Railway Station?

The best way to get to the White Cliffs of Dover is to make your way by foot or by taxi, as there isn't a bus service.

A taxi ride will cost around £6.00 and take 5-10 minutes.

If you choose to walk, we suggest you head towards the town centre (about 5 minutes from the station and clearly signposted). Walk to Dover Visitor Information Centre at Dover Museum in the Market Square where you can pop in to see us for more information and a map if you wish to. The seafront is only a few steps away! Head along Bench Street and you can choose to walk along Townwall Street towards the Eastern Docks, or use the underpass to cross the busy road (where they discovered the famous Bronze Age Boat now on display at Dover Museum) and enjoy a seafront walk.

From the town centre it will take approximately 40 minutes to reach the top of the cliffs. We are sure you will wish to take many photos along the way!

The White Cliffs of Dover Visitor Centre (National Trust) is the perfect place to call in for refreshments after your walk. You can continue along the cliffs towards St Margaret's. Visit South Foreland Lighthouse and Mrs Knott's Tearoom, the Pines Gardens & Museum and great places to eat - The Cliffe Pub & Kitchen at The White Cliffs Hotel, The Coastguard, The Red Lion - before returning by foot or bus. The cliff top footpath continues to Kingsdown. This is all part of the Saxon Shore Way and the England Coast Path.
