Set at the foot of Shakespeare Cliff and just along the coast from busy Dover Harbour, Shakespeare beach is a comparatively peaceful place to visit. Here, you can enjoy a spot of fishing and dogs are sure to enjoy bounding along the shingle beach.

Why the name? The impressive Shakespeare Cliff is said to have inspired a passage from Shakespeare’s King Lear; Shakespeare was a frequent visitor to Dover at the time of writing it.
