The East Cliff area of the White Cliffs of Dover viewed from the lighthouse area of the Prince of Wales Pier (the lighthouse is to the left).

Above East Cliff are Dover Castle, the church of St Mary-in-Castro, and the Roman Pharos.

The building intruding on the left of the photo is the new cafe, built like a bomb-shelter, that replaced the one destroyed in the 1987 hurricane. The White Cliffs of Dover from the Prince of Wales Pier Cafe photo was taken from the front of the building .

On the other side of the harbour (right of the photo) is part of the car ferry terminal (Port of Dover guide); on the cliffs above are three masts of a Second World War early-warning Chain Home radar station.

The photo was taken on the 31st of August, 2009.

It was from a few yards behind this location that the The Norman Arrow: World`s Largest Diesel Catamaran in Dover photo was taken.

The Victorian Officers Mess is just below the 1st Century Roman Pharos and the 11th Century Saxon church of St Mary-in-Castro; also see the Swingate Transmitting Station photo.

The houses below the cliffs are East Cliff and Marine Parade: see the Charles Lightoller of the Titanic and the Spanish Prince blockship, 8 East Cliff, Dover photo.

To the right of East Cliff, and below the Radar Station, are the Eastern Docks (where the cross-channel ferries berth).
