    Driving back up from the West coast of France in a few weeks, catching an 8.45am ferry from Calais to Dover, want to stay overnight in Calais any suggestions?

    calais parking

    you can stay in the booking offices car park, called `terminoux parking` for free, or you can stay on the `aire` at Calais, in the season there is a charge, could find co ordinates and prices if you need them, but just watching tv at the mo, alan:Smile:

    Stock answer is the ferry departure parking. Before you get to the ticket booths you'll see loads of parked up vehicles, perfectly legal and OK to stop overnight. Bit noisy.

    Damn you.

    You're watching TV, scanning FUN and still beat me to it.

    Bet you drink Carling Black Label.

    Gravelines is always a good stop, but was full last sunday by 3pm. If your early its a nice aire and a good finish to your holiday.
