Dover Priory Station

The charming Dover Priory, which first opened in 1861, is the main station serving Dover. Given that so many of the people using Dover Priory are about to begin an adventure, or are returning from one, it's a small, modest station of just 2 platforms and 3 tracks.

The express service to St. Pancras runs from here, as does the slower, stopping train to Victoria and you can also take local trains into Kent. The station building has room for a ticket office, a waiting room with toilets and a cafe but nothing else. It's as if Dover doesn't want to intrude on any thoughts about your journey.

Wheelchairs are available at the station and there's a lift if you want to avoid using the footbridge. Ramps for access to trains are available on request. There's a small car park, which has free parking if you have a disabled blue badge.

There is no left luggage facility at the station.

There's a taxi rank outside for the short ride down to the Dover Eastern Docks or Dover Cruise terminal, which are at either end of the town's dock (approximately £8).

Folkestone Road CT17 9SB Dover Taxis to the ferry and cruise terminals. There is a regular shuttle bus to Dover Eastern Docks leaving around evey 20-30 minutes. There is a small charge. Small station car park from £5 per day.
