    Too late Canterbury P&R closes at 8:30pm. I think you can still park on the Esplanade area has been reduced but still a few spaces.

    Edit: Read it as sailing in the morning missed the August bit.

    Still use the esplanade, park opposite the Great Western Hotel and pop over for a very nice dinner and cold beer, only a two minute drive to the port next morning. Suits us. :D:D

    The Camping and Caravan Club site at Canterbury is very well placed and we used it recently on a trip to France. Site even gives you menus for a couple of local takeaways who will deliver to site should you feel particularly lazy on arrival. Good clean shower block, and of course you can leave full of clean water (if that's how you roll) and with empty grey and black ready for your holiday :D

    Why overnight in Dover? Get a late crossing to France and overnight in Calais or Dunkirke,,,you can sleep in and still get an early start the next day,,,BUSBY,,,

    charge at Canterbury p+r is per calender day so if you overnight its 2 days charge but discounted for first day if u arrive late. it was full by 3 when we went a few weeks ago.
