The White Cliffs of Dover

by Barry Shulman |  Published: Aug 02, '11


Our 61-day 2011 summer cruise, London–Venice on the Crystal Serenity started today. Actually we departed from Dover.

We’ve all heard of the White Cliffs of Dover. Well here they are. They are called this because they are white, and they are white because they are formed from chalk (pure white calcium carbonate).

Being the narrowest part of the English Channel, this spot is also famous for English Channel swims.

More importantly, it is the closest point to Continental Europe from the UK. The 100-meter cliffs allowed Britain to withstand sieges throughout history, including WWs I and II. It also didn’t hurt that the British Navy controlled the seas.
