Hi, I've just received my passport after a long winded process including an interview! Now I'm keen to make use of it. My grandfather and I have talked about taking a day out to Boulogne by train, ferry and train. I understand the fares going this way are much more reasonable (appears to be £14.70 Ashford to Calais return with a railcard) than trying to go via Eurostar when heading to Calais and Boulogne. I do realise the problem with lengthy waits owing to the ferries though! My rough plan is as follows and would probably be on a Saturday: Code: Ashford International 07:15 Dover Priory 07:41 07:50 Port of Dover 07:55 09:25 Port of Calais 11:55 12:20 Calais-Ville 12:30 13:09 Boulogne-Tintelleries 13:44 Boulogne-Tintelleries 16:53 Calais-Ville 17:24 17:55 Port of Calais 18:05 19:55 Port of Dover 20:25 20:35 Dover Priory 20:40 20:49 Ashford International 21:14 I do however have a couple of questions and worries that I'm hoping those with more experience will be able to address. Are P&O very strict about foot passengers checking in 45 minutes before sailing? Would turning up any later result in having to wait for the next sailing? Are there still buses from the port at Calais to Calais Ville station? Is the timetable still as it was last year?
