    Hi everyone,
    Can anyone out there please tell me if it is still possible to park overnight at Dover sea -front near the marina for one night only prior to catching a ferry the following day,without having to get up at some unearthly hour to avoid the parking wardens. Many thanks for any help with this.gwyntaxi

    I fourth that, used Canterbury aire on 29 th December and wouldn't now bother with using Marina Parade. The aire is a lot more relaxing.

    Absolutely, would have suggested this myself , but it's not what was asked, why anyone wants to stay on this side when they can be on the other side and ready to go in the morning always escapes me.

    Yes you can park overnight on Dover seafront but be away before 9am. Can then go to Langdon Cliffs NT beauty spot to pass a few hours before the ferry. Canterbury Aire is nice too. Toby Trux.

    Remember if using Canterbury Park and Ride to be there before 8.30pm as the gates close for entry but not for exit.

    Same here we used to overnight this side but haven't done it for a few years now, there's so much choice the other side and your made welcome which is more than can be said for the UK.
