    Depends on the time of week/year. I wouldn't be optimistic about a summer weekend but Spring/Autumn midweek would probably be OK. Why not head for Cite Europe instead?

    Depends on the day of the week I guess, over Easter was chock a block and nobody will appreciate you driving in, then round two more times looking for a space at 130 in the morning like somebody did when we were there...

    NO DEFINITELY NOT

    If you must travel at silly times then have the consideration not to bother normal people.

    Why don t you stop on the terminal car park.

    Another vote for Cite Europe. Although if you do arrive please be quiet as everybody else will be asleep.

    It amazes me the number of people who turn up at Aires at god knows what time and then spend 10 minutes reversing into a spot with shouted instructions, then have another 15 minute loud conversation outside, all accompanied by a regular banging of doors. And the worse are those sliding doors on PVCs. Totally unsociable.

    Rant over ....... and breathe ........

    At Wissant last Tuesday (3rd May) arrived 3pm plenty of room. Place filled up quickly, by 6pm it was full. Later I noticed two MH squeezed in on the aires' roadway. We left at 8am still full, no busses but one car and caravan parked in a bus bay.

    We no longer use Cite Europe so our plan B is Boulogne now 6 euros a night.
