Dover Port Information

There has been a harbour at Dover for many centuries. It's history can be traced back to Roman times. It's geographical position made it an ideal choice for sailors of small ships and boats who could look to it's deep cleft formed in the hills by the River Dour to give it protection when traveling across the strait.

James 1 created Dover Harbour in 1606 and currently 16 million ferry passengers sail from Dover ferry port. The port of Dover has continued to grow and develop to possibly the biggest ferry passenger seaport in the world with over 2.5 million cars and 140,000 coaches sailing across the English Channel to France.

The port is an ideal location on the South East coast for onward travel with excellent links to the UK Rail and motorway networks.
