Diederik Smet is manager at Destination Dover, an organisation that works to promote Dover as a tourist destination, rather than only as a place of transition and journeying. With its dramatic coastline, its intriguing art and architecture, the magnificent castle, and great transport connections, Diederik is enthusiastic about the town’s capability for growth and renewal, and is passionate about celebrating its existing treasures. In an interview with the Guardian, he said “It’s on the up, with lots of development. Wonderful green spaces nearby, including cycle and walking routes. Gorgeous architecture”.
