Looking across the beach and harbour at the White Cliffs of Dover beyond the Eastern Arm pier and car ferry terminal of the Eastern Docks.

The photo was taken from the entrance to the Prince of Wales Pier, and as I probably mention in most captions of Dover beach photos, if the tide had been a little lower, you might even have seen some stretches of sand instead of all those pebbles! Nearby is the Clock Tower and Sue`s Seafood Stall.

On the cliff-top on the left is the Victorian Officers Mess (built after the Crimean War between 1856 and 1858) in the grounds of Dover Castle. I haven't got a close-up of the Officers Mess at the moment, but part of it can be seen in the background of this photo of Vice-Admiral Sir Bertram Home Ramsay's statue.

More of Dover's 12th Century Norman Castle viewed from this location is shown in the Dover Castle and the Beach from the Prince of Wales Pier, UK photo.

Directly below the Officers Mess on the base of the cliffs is the Dover Central Premier Lodge hotel.

In the harbour there are swimmers and a powerboat. Jubilee Way curves into the Eastern Docks at the base of the cliffs above the powerboat.
