How to get to Dover

Dover, set against the iconic backdrop of its white cliffs, is a storied town that serves as a key juncture for travellers in the southeast of England.

For those arriving by air, the nearest major airports are London Heathrow and London Gatwick, both within a couple of hours' drive, connecting Dover to the world. Rail travel offers a scenic and efficient option, with Dover Priory Station providing direct links to London and beyond, embedding the journey with the charm of the English countryside. The town is also well-served by major road networks, including the M20 motorway, making it a straightforward drive for those travelling by coach or car. Dover's well-connected transport options ensure the town is not only a gateway to continental voyages but also easily accessible, inviting you to begin your journey with ease and anticipation.

Things to do in Dover

Before embarking on your maritime journey from Dover, immerse yourself in a town steeped in history and natural beauty. Begin with the majestic Dover Castle, perched atop the iconic White Cliffs, offering a glimpse into England's medieval past and wartime resilience, with underground tunnels that whisper of secret wartime missions. Wander down to the seafront and take in the tranquil views of the harbour, a precursor to the aquatic adventures that await.

For those with a penchant for nature, the White Cliffs offer breathtaking walking paths that boast stunning views of the English Channel, perfect for a pre-cruise hike. In town, the Dover Museum presents a rich tapestry of local history, including the Bronze Age Boat exhibit, which ties the town's maritime heritage to ancient times.

Shopping enthusiasts can visit the De Bradelei Wharf, a unique outlet centre where you can find designer brands at discounted prices, ensuring you set sail in style. Indulge in local flavours at one of the many charming seaside restaurants or traditional English tea shops, where you can savour the taste of Kent. In the serenity of the nearby Kearsney Abbey Gardens, allow the soothing sounds of the river and the lush greenery to instil a sense of peace before your voyage.

Dover, with its blend of historic fortifications, scenic nature, and modern indulgences, offers the perfect setting to relax, explore and prepare for the excitement of cruising the open seas.

Destination highlights

From the historic port of Dover, set sail on a journey to the heart of nature's grandeur in the majestic Norwegian Fjords. Here, the immense beauty of precipitous cliffs and serene waters awaits, with the possibility of witnessing the Midnight Sun or the awe-striking Northern Lights. These fjords are not just geographical wonders but also a canvas for the breathtaking artistry of the natural world.

Venture close to home and discover the diverse cultures and landscapes of the British Isles. Experience the rugged splendour of Scotland's highlands, the quaint allure of England's seaside hamlets, the pastoral beauty of the Welsh countryside and Ireland's wild coastlines. Each location invites you to step into history, savour unique local cuisines and soak in the rich traditions that unify these lands.

For sun-seekers, the voyage extends to the idyllic Canary Islands, where an eternal spring climate and diverse landscapes promise year-round escapades. From the lush, enigmatic forests of La Palma to the sweeping dunes of Gran Canaria and the volcanic splendours of Lanzarote, each island presents a unique chapter in a grand tale of exploration and enchantment.
