Dover Eastern Docks (Port of Dover)

Dover docks are possibly the busiest passenger port in the World. They carry 15 million passengers, 3/4 million HGVs and 120,000 buses & coaches annually. The docks have 9 berths. Four ferry companies operate out of the docks, P & O, Seafrance, Norfolk Lines and LD Lines. The docks are run by the Dover Harbour Board who were awarded their charter by James I in 1606. The docks are squeezed into land below the famous White Cliffs.
