Port of Dover


Overview


The Port of Dover is the cross-channel port situated in Dover, Kent, south-east England. The port has been owned and operated by the Dover Harbour Board, a statutory corporation, since it was formed by Royal Charter in 1606 by King James I. During its existence the Dover Harbour Board has owned/operated numerous vessels in support of its activities and that’s why it has its own special category on the website.
