    A great place to park, water dump and toilets. :thumb: £2.50 for 24 hours and it includes the bus into town.:thumb:
    [HI] But its gates are locked after the last bus, you can get out any time, but unable to get in until 07.00 in the morning ![/HI]
    So no good if your looking at parking at 23.00. :ROFLMAO: Bob.

    This is from the Canterbury Park & Ride web site.

    Nomal services


    • Monday to Saturday, 7am to 7:30pm (except Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day)
    • Buses run approximately every 8 minutes with a slightly reduced service after 7pm.
    Please note that the entry barriers will lock one hour after the last bus leaves but the exit barriers will still operate provided that you have a validated ticket

    stop 24 cheriton easy exit from eurotunnel, I understand £5;00 for parking overnight for cars but not sure if higher for vans. not all night service station just KFC and burger bar which closes around midnight. not sure how they collect fees if you turn up at midnight, but this is defiantly not like service stations you expect on motorway if you expect anything.

    thanks b-well, i had not heard of it before, when i had a look on google earth it looked like a building site. we stayed at the caravan site at folkstone for three nights two years ago and i did not see it then. so i was surprised when it came up as a stopover.
    regards, pete.
