The Port of Dover information
Dover - Calais
You deserve a holiday!
Ferries taking the route Dover - Calais depart from Dover's Eastern Dock. Dover Eastern Docks can easily be accessed via road, rail and shuttle bus.
Please note that when checking in on the ferry, allow at least 30 minutes before departure if travelling to Calais by car.
A ferry passenger on foot should allow a good 45 minutes before departure, especially at peak times as the Dover to Calais ferry route has to keep to a rigid timetable and has to depart promptly.
