|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.
