About The White Cliffs of Dover

Often called the Gateway to England, the white cliffs of Dover along the southern coast of England are without doubt one of the country's most famous landmarks, and have also become a symbol of freedom and hope, being strongly associated with the wartime defence of Britain, after the popular World War 2 song by Dame Vera Lynn "(There'll Be Bluebirds Over) The White Cliffs of Dover" -

There'll be bluebirds over
The white cliffs of Dover
Tomorrow, just you wait and see
There'll be love and laughter
And peace ever after
Tomorrow, when the world is free

During the various wars throughout the centuries, the white cliffs of Dover were often a soldiers last sight of England as he went off to war, and should he survive, the cliffs were often the first thing he would see on his return, and were thus a great cause for excitement and celebration having made it home.

Today, the White Cliffs of Dover are still a great cause for celebration as one of England's most fantastic natural features standing some 350 feet high, and stretching for 8 miles along the southern coast of England.
