Dover to Calais as a foot passenger

Travel as a foot passenger between Dover and Calais

At present only P&O carry foot passengers on this route, at a one-way price (December 2019) of £30 (standard). Cyclists can take a bike at no extra cost.

The P&O ferry terminal is 1.5 miles from the centre of Dover (P&O Ferries Ltd East Camber Building, Eastern Docks, Dover, Kent CT16 1JA. Tel: +44 (0) 1304 862539 Fax: +44 (0) 1304 862577). It is probably wise to book if you know approximately what time you will get to Dover (http://www.poferries.com/quote), just in case there is a large group travelling at the same time. However, the chances are if you turn up at the ferry office you will get a ticket.

You need to be there 45-60 minutes before the boat departs. After check-in you will be taken by bus to go through airport-style security and bag check. The crossing takes 90 minutes. On disembarkation you will again be taken by bus to the ferry terminal office. From there it is a short walk into Calais, or you can get a taxi. It is as safe to walk through Calais as it is anywhere
