The foot of the Kent Downs surrounds the market town of Hythe and is characterised by a large arch of chalk that sweeps across Kent and forms the most important geological feature of the area. The whole of the Dover and Folkestone White Cliffs are defined as Heritage Coasts. One of the world’s most famous sections of coastline, the magnificent high chalk cliffs of Dover look out onto the English Channel. Used for defence in both World Wars, visitors can see the Fan Bay Deep Shelter tunnels hidden deep within the chalk.
