Approximately 70 miles from London, the M20 will provide the quickest and most direct route for most passengers heading to Dover, particularly if coming from the West. The M20 merges into the A20 at Folkestone.

Continue along the A20 until you reach the Eastern Docks roundabout, where you will take the first left and enter Dover Ferry Terminal (Eastern Docks).

If you are coming to Dover via the M2, the road merges into the A2 at Faversham. Stay on the A2 until you get to the Eastern Docks roundabout and take a right into Dover Ferry Terminal (Eastern Docks).
