Welcome back Incy from your world wide travels
Welcome Back Skyline..
Hi Skyline any chance of a camera the N.T. cafe then we could see all the ships coming and going rather than a load of pebbles but a fantastic website go round the world most mornings before work Cheers
Just in case anyone is as geeky as me and wants to know the ships that are currently in Dover, you can go here for live tracking/info: http://www.marinetraffic.com/en/ais/details/ports/154/United%20Kingdom_port:DOVER
Thanks for that info James, I've been hoping someone would tell me what they were! Now I can't get out until after my op I really miss keeping up with all the goings on down there. Love Skyline webcams and thank you so much for it. x
Hi all. James here from Dover Sea Sports Centre. The signs that you see are telling people to avoid the beach when the noisy pile driving is taking place. The walk way has been laid as our other entrance (behind the camera) is temporarily closed. This walkway allows those with any mobility issues to get across the beach to the reception door.It's a shame we don't have another cam on the huge redevelopment works happening to the right of the camera.
Unusual sight this morning, one of the P&O Spirit Class ships (Britain or France) bows up in number 9 berth.
Well, the Eurostar, and other high speed trains, are great for traveling distances over land but I absolutely love the chance to ride a ferry when possible.
the weather is like here, cloudy and about 15 °
Mel P, why do people run today? prefers the speed, and besides that is fascinating, but the truth if it is a pleasure trip I think anyway that a ferrie or ferry is the choice.
Eurostar is great, I've done it several times to Paris or to Brussels. Far better than flying in my opinion. It has though unfortunately killed off the ferries to some extent. Even the stations both sides, in Dover and Calais, have closed, making it much more difficult for foot passengers. Convenient as Eurostar is, the ferries are dear to my heart.
Hi Mick Thanks for the information, it's really interesting, I already imagine going there, apparently that travels almost flying, for how fast it is ... uff, I wish there was one in Chile as long as it is this country would join north center and south approx. about 5,000 kmts and a few hours. Well in any case are the airplanes, and but accommodate and take trips by bus or car, and enjoy long trips.I suppose you'll repeat that trip, you say it was fantastic.
Hi Patti, as Tony has mentioned you can travel under the English Channel (Euro Tunnel) by train which is another option travelling to France and further into Europe. All around the Southern ports of England, such as Plymouth, Portsmouth, Dover and others provide ferry crossings. The Euro channel runs trains from St. Pancras in London to Paris, I made the journey approx. 5 years ago, it's a fantastic journey and so quick. Have a great day.
Tony, you mean the euro tunel, engineering wonder, and how fast do you travel? As soon as you're on the other side?
