Terminals at the Port of Dover

The Port of Dover, though fairly compact given the number of ships docking, provides travelers with a straightforward experience. However, this also means it can get quite busy. Therefore, it’s important to arrive well in advance for check-in.


Dover itself is more of a transit port. It’s not a particularly exciting city with many attractions. Primarily, it’s an important maritime location, hosting crossings from Dover to Dunkirk and Dover to Calais.
