Dover is a local government district in Kentmarker, England. Dovermarker is its administrative centre. It was formed on 1 April 1974 by the merger of the boroughs of Dealmarker, Dovermarker, and Sandwichmarker along with Dover Rural District and most of Eastry Rural District. There are three towns within the district: Dovermarker, Dealmarker and Sandwichmarker; and the parishes below: The northern boundary of the district is the River Stour; on its eastern side is the district of Canterbury; to the south the parish of Capel-le-Fernemarker; and to the east the Straits of Dovermarker. The southern part of the latter is the point where the North Downsmarker meets the sea, at the so-called ‘White cliffs of Dovermarker’. Further north along the coast, from Deal onwards, the land is at sea level, where the River Stour enters the sea by a circuitous route. It is here, on the sand-dunes, that the Royal St George's Golf Clubmarker, founded in 1887, and of international repute, is situated.

In district are industrial remains of the erstwhile Kent coalfield, situated around Tilmanstonemarker and Betteshangermarker. Technically speaking, half of the underwater section of the Channel Tunnelmarker is under British Sovereignty and thus part of the district.

Communications

Crossing Dover district are the Roman roads of Watling Streetmarker and that leading from Richboroughmarker. Today the main road, the A2, closely follows Watling Street to Dover.
