Getting from Heathrow Airport to Dover by train or bus

We need to get a bus or train to Dover the same day we arrive at Heathrow around noon. Will have 1 siutcase and 1 carry-on to luggage to pack. Most direct route preferred. Thank you.

Piccadilly undergroun dline to Kings Cross.

Fast train from St Pancras station to Dover. Times and fares on Nationalrail.co.uk but no need to book in advance.

Is this to connect to a cruise by any chance as by any method of transport it's at least 2 hours from airport to cruise terminal - plus at least another hour from landing to the point you pass through customs with your luggage.

So you won't realistically be at Dover before 3:00pm possibly later.

Many thanks for your prompt response. Doesn't sound too complicated.

We are staying in Dover 2 nights before we board our cruise ship so we can afford to take our time getting there but need to be there the same day because we have booked B&B in Dover the night we fly in. Have not "done Dover" so we are looking forward to exploring it.

If you have 2 nights in Dover then make sure you fit in a trip to Canterbury which is only 15-30 mins by train and is well worth at least half a day.
