Locally it would have to be Dover Castle a place steeped in history from the oldest Roman Lighthouse in Britain , the great Norman Castle itself, the WW11 command centre built deep inside the cliff under the castle from where the Dunkirk evacuation was co-ordinated, the underground hospital and, even deeper in the cliffs, the 1960's nuclear command bunker, as well as the fantastic views out over the English Channel.
Also we'd take the walk along the top of the cliffs from Dover to St. Margrets Bay and back.
We also have Deal Castle and Walmer Castle close by as well as Canterbury Cathedral, all worth a visit.
We had an American friend stay with us this year and we'd already done all the above with her before so this time it was a road trip taking in Stonehenge, the Eden Project in Cornwall and Bath.
London with all its many visitor attractions is close too but, as we have found with New York, you need more than a couple of days, more like a couple of weeks, to see and appreciate that.
