Magnificent coastal site overlooking the English Channel

These high chalk cliffs look out onto the English Channel, giving far-reaching views towards the French coast.

The best way to see the cliffs is to take a walk along the coastal path towards South Foreland Lighthouse. You’ll get a great view of the cliffs and also see the chalk grassland that’s home to so many unusual plants and insects like the chalkhill blue butterfly and the pyramidal orchid.

The cliffs also have a special place in our national history and they were used for defence in both World Wars. You’ll see reminders of this past all along the cliffs from the slit trenches dug by soldiers to the concrete remains of the range finding station.
