Bienvenue à Samphire Hoe

Samphire Hoe est une réserve naturelle de 30 hectares au pied des falaises de Douvres qui accueille chaque année plus de 80 000 visiteurs. Ce site a été créé par Eurotunnel par l’utilisation de 5 millions de m3 de craie extraite du sous-sol durant le creusement des tunnels. Samphire Hoe est un modèle de biodiversité avec plus de 200 espèces de plantes, 120 d’oiseaux et 30 de papillons. Samphire Hoe a reçu en 2015 pour la 11ème année consécutive son Green Flag Award (pavillon vert) qui distingue les espaces naturels les mieux préservés en Angleterre.
