Dover Information

The town of Dover is possibly the UK's most famous ferry port, and is located in Kent on England's south coast. The city faces France across the narrowest part of the English Channel. Dover has always been a place of strategic importance owing to its location; some of the remains found there suggest that Dover was favoured by people wishing to enter England even during prehistoric times.

The town has many wonderful sights to visit, with Kearsney Abbey and St. Edmund's Chapel being the two biggest religious sites, and the famed white cliffs of Dover, as well as the massive Dover Castle, some of the most popular landmarks in the area.

    Simple, quick, easy, to book at prices BETTER than ferry company
    • Dover to Calais with DFDS Seaways

      I travel DFDS and pay extra for premium lounge to ensure a quiet comfortable journey. Despite this being my 5th trip of 5he year and supposedly getting best rates from DFDS, booking with Ferrysavers is nearly Half the price offered by ferry company direct. When driving to Ibiza l can book Dover Calais and Denier to Ibiza with same company at same time - so easy!
