    • Parking at Calais for train to London St. Pancras

      by missashleehill Online Now Dec 24, 2013 at 11:29 AM

      My dad is doing a road trip around Europe and will be driving to Calais in March to park his car up and then catch the train from Calais to London St. Pancras. He needs to find a secure carpark that he can park his car in for about 9 days. I'd love to be able to book it for him in advance also. Could anyone please advise me if there is a secure long stay car park near the Calais train station. Any help would be massively appreciated.

    • Long term parking in Calais close to the ferry terminal

      by inselkind Online Now Sep 11, 2012 at 1:42 PM

      Hi there,

      I hope somebody can help me.
      Does anybody have experience (or happens to know)if there is a secure long term parking car park close to the port?
      I think I found one, but it doesn't seem to be possible to book a space in advance via internet and just gives a french phone nr.(I don't speak french).
      I wouldn't want my parents taking a risk and just turning up and hope for the best. It has to be secure as well. Thanks for your help!

      What time before the ferry should I turn up at Dover ?

      by Mark_Lester Online Now Jun 23, 2012 at 12:15 AM

      £80 for me and the family, it's a deal!. We'd normally fly to the continent then hire a car but as we'd be going to France or Germany anyway this time it's a no brainer.
      I've never taken a car ferry before, how long before the scheduled departure should I aim for. I can't find this obvious piece of advice anywhere.

      by bplobrano Online Now Aug 31, 2010 at 7:43 PM

      My g.g.grandfather Nathaniel Powell & his brother Thomas were lace makers from England living in Calais in the 1840s. Most of their children were born there before they came to the US arounf 1850 and settled in CONN & Philadelphia. Two of the sons(my g.grandfather) started a stocking mill in Philadelphia in 1879 and became quite successful. We want to see the lace museum and the area of St. Pierre where they lived. We are wondering where the best archives are--perhaps city hall? Could we find a history buff to hire for a tour. We will only come down from London on the train for the day--9:30am-9:30pm. perhaps on Sept 9th.

      Travelling Rome - UK via Calais

      by platapus Online Now Jun 29, 2009 at 6:44 PM

      My wife and I are in our 70's and will be arriving in Calais (by train) from Rome.

      We want to cross the Channel by boat so as to see the White Cliffs of Dover from the sea.

      Can somebody give me some advice please......

      Is the railway station close to the "ferry" terminal....and how do we get from the train to the boat, ie is a taxi applicable and what are the costs etc.

      How often do ferries depart Calais and do we board as a "foot" passenger or otherwise....and do we have to have our luggage with us, or is it booked separately?

      Finally, an indication of the fares to cross the Channel would be appreciated.

      Does anyone know of a cheap place to eat in Calais please? We have tried Flunches in the Auchan a couple of times and been very disappointed each time. Have heard about Buffalo grill, which is opposite, but don't know what sort of prices they charge. We can catch a bus into the town itself so that wouldn't be a problem if there is somewhere nice there. Thanks in advance
