Samphire Hoe

Stroll below the famous white cliffs at Samphire Hoe, England's newest piece of land made from chalk marl excavated from the Channel Tunnel.

It has quickly become one of the world's rarest habitats - chalk grassland and a haven for wildlife. Look up and you might see kestrels hawking above; look down and scarce beautiful wildflowers can be seen along the paths. Look out across the sea to distant views of France from the tranquility of this unique country park setting. Visit the education shelter with its woodburning stoves and displays, refreshments are available.

Signposted from the A20 west of Dover. Open 7am till dusk every day.

Samphire Hoe is owned by Eurotunnel and managed together with the White Cliffs Countryside Partnership.
