    Am leaving Monday for our 3 month Europe trip, heading for Croatia.
    Arrive Dunkirk at 3pm Monday - can anyone suggest an Aires or place to park as we are heading for Luxembourg/Germany?

    Hi Jaygee,
    Gravelines is a good bet, just south of Dunkirk.

    Check in my Flickr photosharing
    It will give you the location if you click on the map to the right

    Hondeschoot

    There's a free air at Hondeschoot, east of Dunkirk, near the Belgium border. Parking and dump is free but you have to pay for water if you need any. We use it before going into Belgium for chocs and cigs on the way home.

    Hi
    If its just for the night at dunkirk, when you leave the ferry go to the roundabout then go back in to the departures there is a large carpark to the right get in there over to the side and your out of the way, cafe and toilets in the ticket block. Pete :thumb:

    Bergues(free but no services, right on the edge of nice town) is very near & in the right direction, If you want something further & are not in a hurry We recomend Eppe Sauvage(free, 2 euro by CC for water) calling at Bavay(Free inc. water).

    Think you'll find (based on the dates) they've already left and passed Calais by now.

    Re: toilets at the DFDS ticket office

    Does anyone know if you can use the toilets upstairs rather than those smelly squats on the ground floor?
