Catching an early ferry from Dover is never a pleasant experience unless you live in Dover. Rather than get up at 3am, drive for hours and then, as dawn breaks, wait on a soulless harbour to board your boat, why not travel down to Canterbury the day before and stay at the the Kings Head Inn. A quaint but very well equipped room, excellent food, some of the best bar prices in Canterbury, lovely staff and all at a very good price is what you can expect, and best of all, three hours extra sleep and a quick drive to Dover and the ferry. Faced with a day driving down through France it makes great sense and in future it will be my journey break of choice. Highly recommended.
Any room if they are all as good as mine!
