Dover Priory is the main station for Dover, one of the best-known port towns on Britain's south coast. It's a terminus of the South East Main Line from London, and of the Dover Branch of the Chatham Main Line - so as well as services to London St Pancras, Victoria and Charing Cross, it's well connected with the rest of Kent.

First opened as a temporary station in 1861, today it's very much a permanent one and has a striking whitewashed facade that dates back to a modernisation project in 1932. The station is just west of the town centre, with the shops around Biggin Street a five-minute walk away. At the end of Biggin Street, you'll find the Grade II listed St Mary's Church, with the pleasant Pencester Gardens behind it. Keep heading south and you'll come to the waterfront, with Dover Marina to your right and the busy ferry terminal to your left.

Dover Priory's main entrance and car park are off Folkestone Road. There are staffed desks and ticket machines on the concourse, with a waiting room and toilets down a short corridor.
