The height of the White cliffs of Dover is 350 feet and has been formed with chalk. This is the reason the cliff looks white in colour, because it is formed with white lime or chalk. And, this is why they are called the White Cliffs of Dover. The British Coastline faces the Strait of Dover and France and the White cliffs of Dover form a part of the British Coastline itself. The White cliff stretches from east to west starting from the town of Dover in the Kent County.

Kent is an important and ancient English port. The White Cliff of Dover is of great historic and symbolic value to Britain as they face Continental Europe across the English Channel. Crossing the Cliff was the only way to get to Continental Europe before air travel was introduced.
