The international station is next to the domestic station and trains are frequent and take about 30 mins.
Choice of slow or hi-speed . Google south eastern trains.
Pvcat.... the Eurostar train will arrive at platforms 3 or 4 at Ashford International. The Dover Priory trains usually depart from platforms 5 and 6 of the same station. You only need to decend a flight of steps and walk along the internal covered walkway. There is a lift too, in case you have heavy luggage.
Details of the timetable can be seen at www.southeasternrailway.co.uk
The timetable usually gets updated in May each year, and although the times don't alter greatly, it would be worth checking the website shortly before you begin your journey.
Prior to boarding the Dover Priory train, you should buy a train ticket. I'd suggest you ask staff at the station to direct you to the bookings hall, which is within the railway station.
Actually,you might see the platform from the Eurostar, as I think it's the island platform next to the international ones? Also, I think there's slow trains but there is a lift at Dover to but years back it wasn't working on the day I was there.
It's quite easy, just make you sure get in the right part of the train as the train splits at Ashford, and one part goes to Dover and one part goes to Canterbury. I always make sure I count the carriages though. I normally board at Ashford.
Ashford train station is clearly marked and signposted, thankfully :)
Just to say that 'frequent' train service from Ashford to Dover means at least two trains every hour, seven days a week. For much of the day on weekdays there are three trains an hour, two trains every hour at weekends. A timetable is hardly needed.
Problem is more likely to be that so few Eurostar trains stop at Ashford!
It might be cheaper on the non high speed train as high speed train has a premium fare even from St Pancras to Stratford you can't use a travel card unless this has changed.
For local travel from Ashford to Dover, there is no supplement for using the high speed trains. That only applies to journeys to and from Ebbsfleet, Stratford or London.
And correct London Travelcards, Oystercards etc cannot be used between St Pancras and Stratford on high speed trains - although that is not relevant to the original question.
