The Port of Dover is Europe’s busiest international ferry port. It consists of two main ports in Dover: Dover Eastern Docks and Dover Western Docks.
If you’re travelling by ferry, you need to go through Dover Eastern Docks ferry terminal, which has frequent services to Calais and Dunkirk in France. Ferry services are operated by DFDS Seaways, Irish Ferries and P&O Ferries. All these ferry services are available to motorists taking their car to France, but only Irish Ferries and P&O Ferries services to Calais accept foot passengers.
National Express coaches operate frequent coach services from here into London. There are also local buses that run into the town centre and Dover Priory railway station.
Dover Western Docks is used as a cruise ship terminal and you’ll only arrive here if you’re travelling on a cruise ship.
