calais (and dover!)


“Calais is a port city in northern France. Across the English Channel from the clifftop town of Dover, it’s the principal ferry crossing point between France and England. Its old town, Calais-Nord, sits on an artificial island surrounded by canals. The imposing Hôtel de Ville (town hall) has a 78m-high belfry with city views, and Rodin’s famous bronze statue, Les Bourgeois de Calais.”

“Dover is a coastal town in England’s southeastern county of Kent. It’s a major port for ferries to Calais, in France. Built to repel invasions from across the English Channel, medieval Dover Castle overlooks the town and houses the extensive Secret Wartime Tunnels. The iconic White Cliffs of Dover are symbolic safeguards at Britain’s closest point to continental Europe.”
