    Dont know to be quite honest, but I do remember our ringleader Jim posting some time ago about getting a ticket for being parked overnight? in a service station. So be careful and check for any signs etc xxxxxxxxxxx

    i think you mean maidstone services at junction 8.
    we've stayed there once, there's a car park for motorhomes\caravans etc
    but your just as well staying on the front in dover, unless of course your crossing via the tunnel.:Smile:

    mark.

    Hi, we stay at the Park and Ride at Canterbury, there is two the one you need is the one at New Dover Road.::bigsmile:

    It is designed for motorhome parking, with big bays a tap and somewhere to empty your waste. they have a toilet and I think its £2.50 and that also includes the bus into town. Bob.:thumb:

    Good choice, I like it because the facilities are open all night, you can chill out in the cafe or browse the book shop and it's not generally busy..
    I use the coach park which suits larger outfits and is right next to the cafe..

    Have a safe trip

    There are services at J.8 and J.11 on the M20. J.11 is 24hr facilities and primarily a truck stop (but nothing wrong with that).

    There is also the Park & Ride at Canterbury, as already mentioned and a few nice sites around Canterbury, Faversham (M2 J.6) and Dover/Folkestone.

    As I live just 30 mins from the tunnel and 35 from the ferries I can't say I have tried any of them though - sorry!
