Overnight near tunnel?

Hi Tony, we slept in the van there in July. We were crossing at 03.30, arrived at 10pm and was offered an immediate crossing which we declined due to fatigue.


In we went and parked up. There's water available if you need it near the coach toilet emptying point.


We'd set our alarm early enough but obviously Eurotunnel don't take any chances, they must take a look at the hanger on your interior mirror, ascertain when your crossing and, quelle surprise, give you an alarm call. Brilliant.

Hi Tony,


We have done just as above, always get there early nearly always get offered next train or the one after. Arrived 26 hours early 3 weeks ago and paid £20 to go straight over.


Only time we didn't was August bank holiday last year and we spent night in coach park along with 3 others, saw and spoke to no one so not a problem. Quite a busy night with coaches but you expect that on that night.

Hi Tony


Try the early arrivals parking at the junction before the tunnel, Jct 11, I think it is but it's signposted anyway it,s a lot quieter than staying on the terminal keep the petrol station on your right and follow the road round to the coach park, if you park up at the back of the coach park there is an entrance to the toilet/washroom facilities.


Have a good trip.
