Cliffs, what cliffs?

On Saturday 26 March we braved an early morning, cold weather, and rain to explore Dover. We started out at the Dover Castle with a walking tour of the underground tunnels which were used as a hospital during WWII. Unfortunately, the lower tunnels that had served as secret command centers for each branch of the military were closed for renovation. The tour was short but well done. It followed the story of an RAF lieutenant who had been shot down over the English channel and then transported to Dover for surgery. This gave the tour a little more of an investment in what was happening and what conditions would have been like in the underground hospital. Personally, I found this to be a nice touch.

During the afternoon we were free to go off and see different things in Dover. This included touring more of the castle, seeing drama between the king and his family, and a great view out over the English Channel and the town of Dover from the top of the tower. Some people braved the rain to see the beach and the famous white cliffs of Dover. Before taking the train back to London, we took advantage of the local all-you-can-eat Chinese buffet.
