    Hi Squeaka

    Marine Parade is the location you are looking for, just be wary of the parking regulations. Parking is free at night between 6pm and 8am I think.

    Hi Ian,

    The road Brian is referring to is at to: 51.124078,1.318531 - Google Maps there are parking meters but I don't think the charges start until 08.00 hrs or it could be 09.00 hrs. There is free blue badge parking though.

    There's usually plenty of room.

    Why would you?
    Simply go to you ferry terminal and get in line.
    They will only charge you a fiver to get on the next ferry.
    Regards Mark.

    We always travel in the evening & park on the Ticket office car park in Calais for that night. Then up early and away. :BigGrin:

    Yes thats what I am saying.
    Always book the cheapest and go when you arrive but make sure that your NOT late.
