Care for a swim?
Dover is also the start of one of the more enduring swimming challenges - the crossing of the English Channel. Swimmers begin their 21 mile swim in Dover and some 22 hours later complete the swim in France.
If you would rather just enjoy the cool waters of the channel, Dover has a pleasant stone beach where you can relax and think about those who would challenge the channel.
Equipment: Swim trunks, goggles and a layer of grease is all that you are permitted on your journey.

Dover even has it's own race circuit!
It is about 5 miles out of town on the way to Canterbury. It is a friendly circuit and is suitable for all the family.
I think that nowadays it is mainly motorcycle racing that takes place here.
