the road to Dover Castle
They say it's often not the destination, but the journey that's important. This couldn't have been more true on this day.
You can take a tour bus up the hill to the castle if you want, but what fun is that? Instead, we trekked through residential areas and bits of woodland - burning off vital calories previously attained from scones and crisps in the process.
If you're fit, I'd recommend walking up the hill. It's not only good for you, you may get to speak to some locals on the way like we did. Doverians are such nice folk. You also get to see some peculiarities of the town.
Dover has been a military town due to its strategic location, so there's a lot of related relics to see and some of which you would miss if you just took the bus up to the hill.
