    For us it would have to be Canterbury Park & Ride. About a 20 minute drive to the ferry.
    There is plenty of information available via the forum search facility.

    Although the council have tightened up you can still park on the Esplanade.

    We stayed at a Britstop pub near Ashford on our way down and another near Sittingbourne on our return. Both convenient for tunnel, lovely settings and nice pubs - didn't eat at the first but food at the latter was excellent. You can now order the 2015/6 book - £30 - but we think well worth it for info on hundreds of free and safe overnight parking options all over UK. You don't need many nights on sites or CLs to add up to £30! Good luck!

    Well, ten days have passed since the OP, and I'm guessing @Mallybobs is well on their way.. :) or maybe not..

    but since they never replied or liked any suggestions.. we may never know.. :rolleyes:

    So what happened to rule 1? If you care to look at the OP you will see it was posted in February and that they only posted half a dozen times. Probably put off by replies like this. ...
