Travelling Rome - UK via Calais

by platapus

My wife and I are in our 70's and will be arriving in Calais (by train) from Rome.

We want to cross the Channel by boat so as to see the White Cliffs of Dover from the sea.

Can somebody give me some advice please......

Is the railway station close to the "ferry" terminal....and how do we get from the train to the boat, ie is a taxi applicable and what are the costs etc.

How often do ferries depart Calais and do we board as a "foot" passenger or otherwise....and do we have to have our luggage with us, or is it booked separately?

Finally, an indication of the fares to cross the Channel would be appreciated.

You can find times and fares for Calais>Dover here:



There are faster and slower crossings.

You will be 'foot' pasengers but the online booking systems will guide you and give you fares. You will keep your luggage with you, I think......but it's been a long time since I used a ferry service to cross the Channel.

If you want to see the white Cliffs then you would be better to take one of the larger ferries (i.e. not the high speed catamarans) so you can go on deck (fingers crossed for decent weather) as the ferry nears the coast.

There is a regular courtesy bus service from the railway station to the ferry port:

Travel Tips for Calais

Park with fountain

by JulesH

There was a park across the road from the clocktower with a really pretty fountain in it. There weren't too many people in the park, but maybe the fact that it was raining had something to do with it?


by grayfo

At 21 miles Calais is the closest French town to England, the white cliffs of Dover can easily be seen on a clear day. Calais has long been the port of passage across the Channel to England. The English occupied Calais from 1347 to 1558 - after complaints from English merchants that the old port was a "den of pirates" raiding their ships.
