If you are talking about traveling to the Port of Harwich to board a cruise ship, you can board a train at Victoria Station that takes you right to the terminal. Its about a 2 hour ride through the countryside .. a very pleasant trip. I don't remember the cost but it wasn't exorbitant.

We took it, left London about 9 or 9:30 am, unloaded at Harwich and went straight to the check-in line. Very simple and easy.

I have no knowledge of Dover -- sorry.

Actually, I don't know the name of the railway company. I suppose all the trains in Victoria Station are British Railways or something like that. We just taxied there from our hotel, located a ticket window and bought our tickets. (We knew what time our train would leave, so we made sure the tickets were for that one.)

The Harwich train definitely wasn't a private line or exotic in any way. I don't recall whether it had different classes of seating since for a 2 hour ride, it didn't seem important.

The station is not Victoria...don't remember name, but in the "City".

Southhampton is through Victoria.

Use goodle, and search for boat train+uk

Great Eastern Railways operates services from Harwich Town, Dovercourt and Harwich International stations to London Liverpool Street and intermediate stations, and to Ipswich.

Additionally, Anglia Railways operates the fast Boat Train service between Harwich International and London Liverpool Street.

Lew, thanks for providing the correct name -- I had completely forgotten it was the Liverpool station.
