Dover Town Council wants to promote and encourage walking in the town as part of a healthy lifestyle. To this end, three varied routes have been created for the community to enjoy. The routes include the town’s heritage, tourism, transport and nature and range from approximately 24 minutes up to 2 hours. All three routes start and finish at the Market Square, Dover.
