Dover is a town and major ferry port in the home country of Kent, South East England. It faces France across the narrowest point of the English channel and lies south-east of Canterbury. 

Dover's name originated with its river - the River Dour. 

Dover has one hospital, Buckland Hospital located in a former Victorian workhouse on Coombe Valley Road. The town once had four hospitals, Buckland, Royal Victoria, Isolation and the Eye Hospitals located at various points across the town.
There are three museums; the main Dover Museum, the Dover transport Museum, and the Roman Painted House. 

Dover also has three Twin Towns:
