    Looking for place to park up and stop over close to the tunnel at Easter, prefer UK side.

    I have seen the service station on the M20 that has something but if I remember it was about £20 ?

    If I can avoid that it would be great but equally don't want a knock on the door at 2am and get moved on.


    Thanks

    My only concern with this is that 2yrs ago we got moved on as both were full or closed and we ended up in a Industrial estate for the night, wasn't ideal.

    Canterbury, the centre of Folkestone or best if in France itself at grave lines, Wissant or Escalles

    Wissant in France and Canterbury in UK is all we use.

    Taken from Facebook..
    10 mins away (they say). Never used it but there and more pubs opening up to letting motorhomes stay..
    Yes, I know about Britstops. :)

    "Hi all.....If you are travelling across the Channel this Easter and you don't want to stay on Dover Seafront...we at the Plough & Harrow are situated just 10 mins away from the port and 20 mins from the Tunnel. You will be made very welcome and we are dog and children friendly"
