Dover is easy to reach, just 50 minutes drive from the M25. Coming across the Dartford Crossing bridge take junction 3 for the M20. Coming along the M25 from the West take the M26 then the M20. Simply follow the signs for Dover and the Eastern Docks. If you have tickets (or a booking reference) just follow the terminal signs for DFDS Calais. You can buy a ticket at the terminal building as you enter the Eastern Docks.

The alternative route from the Dartford Crossing is via the A2/M2, leaving the M25 at junction 2. This takes perhaps an extra 15 minutes compared to travelling down the M20, but is useful if there are roadworks or delays on the M20.
