About Dover

Dover faces the narrowest part of the English Channel and on a clear day, you can see France from the ferry terminal. Dover Ferry Port is Europe's busiest international ferry terminal, and the closest English port to France, which lies 22 miles away. Ferries run 24 hours a day with a departure on average every 30 minutes to either Calais or Calais, providing quick and effective links to the rest of France and all of Europe beyond. Due to its proximity to France, Dover has always been of great strategic importance to Britain. Archeologists have found evidence of people living here since the Stone Age. After the Romans invaded, Dover became - and remains - the gateway to England. One of the best-preserved Roman villas in Britain is located here.
