Dover Port - Ferries to Calais France

Dover Port - P & O Ferry leaving for Calais, France

Impressions of Dover Port

For travellers from the UK or European continent, the small vibrant harbour town of Dover with its many beautiful sites and coastline sceneries, is definitely worth a short stay where possible. Although the opening of the Euro tunnel in 1994 and the suspension of the legendary Hovercraft services in 2000 has slightly reduced the importance of the port, it’s still one of the most important harbours for Kent and Sussex and the city of London, connected by the M 20 via Folkestone or Dover Priory station, serviced by Southeastern Railways.
