Passenger Terminal

The Passenger Terminal building at Dover’s Eastern Docks is where foot passengers are dropped off after disembarking from the ferry.

It is also where you will come before boarding the ferry if travelling as a foot passenger, using either the drop off car park, taxi rank, bus or coach stop. You will then take a shuttle bus from the Passenger Terminal building to your ferry.

The Passenger Terminal, also has Costa Coffee kiosks and outlets as well as Port Reception, Border Force public counter, P&O foot passenger ticket desk and public toilets.
