Victoria to Dover transportation



We will be spending a few days in London prior to our Baltic cruise leaving from Dover. Our hotel is near Victoria station and I wondered if anyone had taken the National Express bus from Victoria Bus Terminal to Dover, or the train from Victoria Station. If so, how was the experience with regards to baggage handling, getting a cab to the port once you get to Dover, time it took, etc.


Hi Merilyn,

We have sailed from Harwich a couple of times and took the train to the port. We had no problems and enjoyed the trip and the scenery. We will be sailing from Dover in September and we are planning on taking the National Express bus from Heathrow and change busses at Victoria Station. We got information from someone on this board that had ridden on the bus that they had ample baggage space on the bus and had an interesting trip. I got the schedules and fares on the internet, and you can book ahead if you wish. The schedules change with the seasons so we are waiting for the summer schedules to firm up our transport to Dover.
