Dover. It's castle, Dover Castle, is historically known as the 'Key to England', having been built in 1066 by William the Conqueror and survived shelling from France in World War 2. The White Cliffs of Dover, which flank the port and town of Dover are considered an icon of England by the National Trust and from Cap Griz-Nez (Cape Grey Nose) in France, on a clear day, you can see the White Cliffs across the 20 miles of the strait of Dover quite nicely!

With Dover's history, it's quite easy to see why we talk about wanting to go there in this new podcast episode!

What historical town would you visit in England?
