St Pancras International Station
2017-08-12 8:15 am
Join us for one of the finest coastal walks in England along the iconic White Cliffs of Dover. On the cliffs at over 100m above sea level if the day is clear we’ll be treated to stunning views of the English Channel and the French coast from Boulogne to Dunkerque. We’ll walk along the cliff edge so we are also treated to views of the beach below.
We will start our walk at Dover where the scenery is instantly dramatic as you see the iconic white cliffs of Dover.
We’ll also pass the 12th Century Dover Castle, stop for lunch at St Margaret’s Bay and pass two further castles before ending at Deal.
Walk Difficulty: 2/10
Meeting Point: St Pancras International station – let’s meet by the Starbucks inside the station at street level near to the main entrance and ticket office. Please make sure you are in St Pancras International station and not Kings Cross Station as this is an easy mistake to make.
Meeting Time: at 08:15 a.m. in St Pancreas station
We will make our way to the platform at 08:25 a.m. If you are late I’m afraid we will not be able to wait and you will be missing the trip. Of course, if you want, you can try to catch up with us at the platform, but the host will be making sure the group gets on the right train, so you will have to figure out the way. Also, you will have to find another way of getting in as I will have your train ticket.
Train*: We will aim to take the 08:37 train that will arrive in Dover Priory at 09:41 am.
*Please note that as the rail network is very unreliable, those details might change depending on the train delays and we may take an earlier or later train. The decision might need to be taken by the leader on the spot to suit the group’s needs. If you do not arrive at the meeting time, we can not guarantee that you will be able to catch up with the group as the leader may not be able to update you about any changes – even if you call or message them, as sometimes the phone network might not be available and often they might be busy taking care of the group. Leader’s priority will always have to be the customers that arrived on time. We add the train details in order to help you out if you have problems getting to the meeting point on time, but take no responsibility for any changes – so the only way to ensure you do not miss out on the event is to arrive on time at the meeting point.
It is very difficult to predict exact return time as it depends on the walking speed and the choices we make along the way (lunch, route etc). If you decide to join, please consider yourself committed for the day.
Lunch: We have booked a table in the restaurant for you, but if you prefer you can bring your own packed lunch.
With all the crazy stuff happening with the weather recently, please note that we may be prevented from doing some of activities due to unpredictable weather events. If this is the case replacement activities will be offered.
