The Port of Dover is Europe's busiest international ferry port and the nearest English port to France - just 21 miles away.

With millions of passengers, cars, trucks, motorcycles and buses passing through on cross-Channel ferries each year, it's no wonder we're known as the 'Gateway to Europe'.

As a result of huge and continued investment, the Port boasts state-of-the-art facilities and excellent transport links.
