Does anyone know whether you can still wildcamp overnight on the seafront promenade at Dover, whilst waiting for the 5am ferry? We did that a couple of years ago, when we arrived early, & it was ideal: in fact we were advised to go there by the port staff as they no longer allow you to stopover within the port area. There were lots of motorhomes all along the roadside - wondered if you can still do that?

We'll be there on 3 June unless we decide to cross over. Depends on what time we get there and whether we need to eat.

We have a SeaFrance carnet this year and the ticket is fully amendable except for specific holiday weekends. We are paying £32 each way.

We will hopefully be there around the second week in June if not before. Why does everyone seem to be getting the really early ferry? I was going to book 7:30 or 8:00am, around that time. Am I missing something here? Cant come soon enough for me. We have been planning this trip for what seems like ages. We are going for two months and I cant believe what a nightmare it is to uproot yourself from society just for two months! Still seems like its a long way off!

I notice on Google map that Marine Parade is split by the main drag towards the Port entrance rbt.

The western bit is more or less the prom that sweeps round to the marina and then the eastern part (much shorter) up towards the rbt.

Which is the part best used for overnighting?

Hi There Hampshireman

The way I do it is:

Come off the A20 at the roundabout you mentioned onto the Esplanade over the marina swing bridge then turn left (still the Esplanade) - over the roundabout onto Waterloo Crescent then onto Marine Parade. Look for other motorhomers and have a good nights sleep.

Enjoy your trip

Exodus as it is June and before school hols in general I guess, but for us it's to get to Amboise for Gaspode's Brass Band Festival Rally.

Thanks David, it looks like the 3rd rbt on the A20 inbound and right to Esplanade, then swing bridge left to M/Parade. I was talking about the port entrance rbt, much further on.

I paid £210 a week ago for a fully amendable dover calais return trip with a 5m camper + 3m trailer. so it would seem my trailer is very costly.

How did you get it SO cheaply
