Whether travelers want to see the famous "White Cliffs", see the War Tunnels, or catch a ferry to Europe, finding convenient trains to Dover should be easy. The Kentish port is well-connected with London and other UK cities via rail links, with short journey times from major airports, and plenty of departures to choose from.

Which is the main train station in Dover?

The major station in Dover is Dover Priory, which is the end stop in the UK's South Eastern Main Line. From there, travelers can take shuttle buses to the ferry port, which take around 10-15 minutes, or walk down Forest Road towards the town center. Some trains may stop at nearby Martin Mill or Kearsney. Both are around 20-30 minutes from the port by taxi.

Why travel by train to Dover?

Trains depart multiple times every hour from London stations, with options in both west and north London - so tourists staying in the center of the capital should be well catered-for. Those arriving at Heathrow or Gatwick Airports can also reach Dover by train in under 2 hours, thanks to express connections. Journey times in general will be much faster than coaches, and Dover Priory has excellent links to the ferry terminals, making onward travel simple.

Before you travel to Dover by train - good to know!

Dover is a lot more than the south coast's busiest ferry port. It's also a fascinating historical city, with plenty of appealing attractions. Dover Castle is a great place to start, mixing up medieval towers and underground hospitals from the Second World War that have been carefully reconstructed. It's a feast for history lovers. The White Cliffs are famous across the world, and offer great opportunities for photographers, while the Western Heights include 200 year-old military tunnels that are regularly opened to the public. And the history goes even further back, with Dover boasting one of the oldest Roman villas in the UK, including some dazzling painted walls that are rarely found in ancient homes. So there's a lot to do, that's for sure.
