Are there any "on and off" sightseeing buses in Dover?
We are 2 girls from Spain and Italy currently living and working in London for a few months.
We want to visit different places around UK, so we will go tomorrow to Dover. We would like to meet someone from here who can explain us the beautiful city and have fun. Does anyone free tomorrow to meet with us?
Me and my partner are in Rochester for the day on Saturday. We will have our 2, 4 & 8year old boys with us and was wondering if there is anywhere kid friendly to grab a bite to eat or any thing worth doing/seeing etc. Also if there's any local parks or inside soft play areas? Many thanks and any advice would be appreciated :)
Does anyone know the name of the shop that has taken over the traditional sweet shop. I was in there last week and would like to check to see whether something is still in stock but I do not the name to call them!
The shop always has things stacked outside and a ramp to go up into the shop. It has a vast array of items from clothing (in back right hand corner), crockery, furniture, handmade crafts and so forth. The counter is in the back left. Last time I was in there they had some lovely handmade children shoes!
Please help! :-)

Canterbury seems to be promoted as a day trip from London. Is there enough to do there for 4 days? Arrving by train/bus - no car.
Hi, We're staying in Tunbridge Wells for 4 days before a cruise on June 8th and wondered how to get from TW to Southampton on June 7th. Public transport is not easy, and I cannot seem to find a reliable private transfer company or taxi. I must be searching incorrectly. Thanks in advance...
Is there any easy way to get from Tunbridge Wells to Southampton for a cruise?

I am moving to Canterbury for a temporary job and would like to know any pros and cons about the place before I go. Any factual information will help a great deal, personal experience and personal opinions of the place would help also. Any feedback about the schools, the transportation, places to go, safety of the town, etc. would be much appreciated.
Can someone suggest a tourgroup or website I can contact that MIGHT do a daytrip from Canterbury to both Scotney Castle and Bodiam Castle? Without breaking the bank? We don't drive, must rely upon minivan tours or somesuch. Also posting in London thread, since we can take a train from London or start our tour from there.
I am planning on taking the train from london to Dover, then the ferry to Calais, France. Does anyone have a suggestion as to how I get from the train station to the ferry station? Also if I leave London early enough can I visit Canterbury on my way to Dover without too much trouble? Thank you for your help.
We'll be staying in Canterbury for 2 days, and since the coast is so close we'd like to take a Stagecoast bus to one of the nearby beach towns. Which is prettiest/most scenic or most worth visiting, in your opinion? Some options are Herne Bay, Whitstaple, Ramsgate, and Broadstairs. From Broadstairs is it easy to get to the beach with white cliffs?
Thank you for your help.

I am going to be travelling from dover to calais in about 2 weeks by car.
I will be travelling with my cousin and my 2 and a half month baby.
I would just like to know what the check in procedures are at dover before boarding and in calais when getting off the boat.
As i am travelling with a baby would just like to make it as easy as possible. The car will be rammed with all my baby stuff, so does anyone know if they stop all cars and search.
Its been a while since i travelled by ferry so am not sure whether procedures have changed or not. I know security procedures and everything are tighter now adays.
Any help from fellow parents on the procedures of checking in would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
We will be in Dover for an overnight stay and have reservations at La Scala restaurant which appears to be in the city.
Our hotel is ~1 mile away and we plan to take a taxi from the restaurant to the hotel.
First, how safe is that area around the restaurant?
Next, and more importantly, how readily available are Taxi's @ ~ 8-9PM when we should be concluding dinner?
If anyone has any suggestions about booking a taxi or whether they should be easily/readily available by the restaurant...it would be appreciated.
Thank you in advance to anyone who replies...
We're going to be driving down a car from UK across Europe to Malta and we're going to be on a tight schedule.
I've found all the details of the ferries that cross from Dover to Calais or Dunkirk. However, I'm wondering if it's better to book online or you can just get there and get a ticket from there? It will be for 2 passengers and a car.
I know that the common reasoning is that if we're on a tight schedule we should book online to make sure we get on - but my worry is that we might arrive too late (or too early) and then won't be able to change the ticket.
Also, I've read you need to be there a certain amount of time before hand to check-in. How much before?
We're currently trying to decide between P&O (to Calais) or Norfolk Lines (to Dunkirk)....or if it pays us (time wise) the eurotunnel.
We would be travelling on a Friday (15th July) so I don't know if there would be any weekend rush or something that would cause delays.
Also, we would be driving down from Newark to Dover - and calculated about 3.5hrs... is this reasonable?
Thanks to anyone who can help!!!
When I am in London next month I thought I would take a day trip to Dover (to visit the Castle). Easy, or so I thought. I used google and clicked on both the Trainline and Southern Railways website. So far, so good. Except.....
a) which station do I start out from?
b) which station do I want to arrive at for accessing the Castle - Priory or Court?
Seems a very expensive trip - £32 odd return.
Bus I gather is cheaper but takes longer? Is the bus arrival point any more convenient for my ultimate goal?
