After spending time in Dover parked on the sea front we thought that we would try the Park and Ride site, New Dover Road in Canterbury as this seemed a little more civilised.
£3.00 gets you 24hrs parking (overnight) and unlimited access to the buses operating between the park and ride site and the City centre – in my opinion, this is fantastic value for money and Well Done Canterbury, other cities could learn from your success.
The bays are a little close together but not really an issue for us and although it was busy, about 15 motorhomes parked up, it was nice and quiet.
This gave me the opportunity to try out my new piece of kit, 2 Fiamma turbo vent kits which hopefully would keep us cool in the event that we experienced soaring temperatures.
I must say that these fans (priced at approx £50 each) worked great and just hung in the skylight using little metal hangers (supplied). We opted to run these using the D cell battery option and just required a good alkaline battery and we found these would last for 3-4 days on high use.
Just outside the park and ride site you can catch a bus into Dover and takes approx 30 minutes should this appeal to you.
We think that dover really has much more to offer than just the port. yes it may be a little run down in places but that can be overlooked especially with all the regeneration that is planned.
The Castle is great and we recommend the Secret Wartime Tunnel tours, and the gift shop isn’t bad either.
Take a look over the channel from the Admirals Platform – if you dare!!
