Staying Here

In Dover

For those who like chain hotels Dover has three Premier Inns.  To guide you to which one you’re booking, Dover East backs onto the event HQ site, Duke of York’s Royal Military School, but on the day you will only be able to join the A2 northbound to the next junction, turn round via roundabouts and return to the A258 roundabout (2 miles) to be in the right position to access the school.  There is a footpath at the back of the hotel that leads directly to the school gate (much shorter).  Dover Central (Eastern Ferry Terminal) is on the seafront within easy walking distance of town centre facilities.  Dover (A20) is in a rural location on the far side of town but has a Beefeater attached.  Good walks from the doorstep.  There is a Travelodge nearing completion not far from the town centre.  It is bookable for stays from 7 May 2018.

Or, at the other end of the scale, you may want to investigate Dover Adventure Backpackers.
