White Cliffs of Dover
The Strait of Dover or Dover Strait is the strait at the narrowest part of the English Channel. The shortest distance across the strait is from the South Foreland, 6 kilometres (some 4 miles) northeast of Dover in the county of Kent, England, to Cap Gris Nez, a cape near to Calais in the French d├ępartement of Pas-de-Calais, France.

Between these two points lies the most popular route for English Channel swimmers.
