Dover is the town in Kent which is geographically closest to the continent and, as the world’s busiest ferry port, many justifiably describe as «the gateway to England».

The Straits of Dover have served as both Britain’s frontline and her gateway for many thousands of years.

This goes some way to explaining why this region has more than its fair share of castles, stately homes and museums than any other coastal region in the UK.

The world-famous, majestic white cliffs of Dover, which for centuries have played a key role in our history as Britain’s «front line», now provide a welcoming sight for many millions of people.

The cliffs offer the opportunity for wonderful walks and superb views or you may simply choose to simply gaze at them from the beach.

Sitting proudly atop the White Cliffs and overlooking the busy ferry port, Dover Castle has a long and eventful history.

For free brochures, activity ideas, accommodation, shopping and food and drink information, you can find it all at the White Cliffs Country website.

Spend some time in the «Garden of England».

Kent, known as the Garden of England for its rich farming and hop making heritage, Kent stretches from Dover’s White Cliffs Country to medieval Canterbury in the east, elegant Tunbridge Wells to the west and the historic Medway towns to the north.

Canada covers all of the North American continent to the north of the USA except Alaska and the small French Islands of Sp Pierre and Miquelon. It is the second largest country in the world after Russia. But the population of Canada is not very big — only 27,4 million people who live mostly in the south of Canada, along the border of the USA. Canada is bordered by three oceans, the Atlantic, the Arctic, and the Pacific. The capital of the country is Ottawa.

Canada is a nation in North America composed of two linguistic and cultural groups: French and English. To these two major groups, and to the small native population of Indians and Eskimos, have been added many thousands of immigrants representing the major European cultures. The two official languages of Canada are English and French. In the north of the country there are 330, 000 Indians and 25,000 Eskimos who are the original peoples of the North, Central and South America. They have no equal rights for many years.

The interior of the country is a vast plain. The plain extends from the Rocky Mountains to the Appalachian Mountains. In the north the plain ends in the islands of the Arctic Ocean. In the south Canada shares the Great Lakes with the United States. The most admirable sight which attracts tourists from all over the world is the Niagara Falls. They are on the Niagara River between Lake Erie and Lake Ontario.

All parts of the country have cold weather in winter. Winter in Canada lasts from four to five months with heavy snowfalls. Summer is usually warm, though quite short.
