We will probably be arriving at Calais late evening having travelled through the Eurotunnel. Is there anywhere we can park up overnight? Also anywhere to park overnight at the Folkestone end?

hi banjo
we have used cite europe for overnight parking no problem at all, as stated elsewhere ther's a dedicated area for motorhomes, and you can use the facilities of the shoping centre, good places to eat and toilets, and tesco has the cheapest beer. cite urope is right at the side of the tunnel entrance.
just be aware we have seen a few potential illegal imigrants on the car park, no problems but be aware.

Just before the EUROTUNNEL- check- in - lanes follow the sign post
"Early arrivals". Good place for overnight parking (lorries, MH, caravans).
Service station/café nearby. Direct road acces to check - in - lanes by lifting
the red white barrier which is not locked.

There are a few problems around Calais with those wishing to enter Britain illegally.

They are camped "in the bushes" and will not miss any opportunity to relieve you of anything valuable.

Hit the motorway and pull off after half an hour or so of motoring.

There are lots of Aires on the coast and they are much safer than Calais.

Or go inland for a quiet night.
