With so many reasons to travel by ferry it is no surprise that Dover ferry routes are some of the most popular ways of travelling to or from the UK.
As the shortest channel crossing between England and France, Dover has been a popular port for people who wish to explore mainland Europe. The iconic chalk cliffs have become known as the White cliffs of Dover, and can be seen for miles across the channel. Dover prides itself in its transport services and tourism, and has 3 museums; the main Dover Museum, the Dover Transport Museum and the Roman Painted House.
