Dover Priory Station is the mainline railway station serving Dover in Kent. There are regular services from here to London Charring Cross and Victoria stations and form early September 2009 a High Speed line opened to London St Pancras, covered by different, more expensive, tickets than the regular services.
The station is named after the Priory of St Martin, which started out in Saxon times and was dissolved by King Henry VIII in the Dissolution of the Monasteries of 1538. Much of the building material was subsequently plundered by locals and today the site is occupied by Dover College.
