We’ve all probably seen large cliffs and hills once before, but have you seen the White Cliffs of Dover literally covered in white snow? This is truly a sight to behold. What to expect:

  • Incredible views of a larger than life snow-covered cliff
  • Take a walk across the frosty fields of the cliffs and take in the incredible view
