I would like to go from Paris to Dover for a cruise in August, do I have to go all the way to London on the train and return to Ashford on another train, then to Dover or is there way to take a eurostar to Ashford from Paris and then a train to Dover??? OR is it better to fly to London and take a train/bus to Dover?? Thank you so much for all your help!!!!
You could take the train and then the ferry to Dover.
