    It's that time of year, Jumbo has had a good scrub down and our snag list from last yr is now completed. We've just got to find a good place to get a Fiamma and Rhino roof rack and then it's June and we're off to wonderful France.

    Just a quickie, are we still able to overnight in the car park at Dover? We'll be arriving about 1 in the morning for the 0600 train ?

    Thanks muchos :D :france::wine:

    The heading and the post don't seem to be about the same thing. The header says Calais and eurotunnel whereas the post says Dover, presumably the ferry.

    Oh for goodness sake, I must have been giddy with excitement lol. It's cos I was about to book the outward journey doh !! It was meant to read Dover, eurotunnel. I can't edit it for some reason either. I'll have to do a new post. Sorry and thanx :)

    Eurotunnel isn't at Dover, but I expect you knew that really.

    As far as I know you cannot overnight in the car park, sometimes they are even strict on the 'no more than 2 hours before' rule, but usually only at peak times. You can overnight at the Canterbury services just before the tunnel though. I have never stopped there as I don't live far from the tunnel, but it has had mixed reviews.

    If possible I would recommend getting straight over to France, at night if they're not busy they will let you on an earlier train, and then overnighting in an aire there, many more to choose from.
