Introducing Old Custom House, an Exclusive Gated Community. Old Custom House was purpose built for Her Majesty’s Customs and Excise and officially opened in 1982.

Located in the heart of Dovercourt, the offices played a vital role in this maritime town where it also undertook important Customs functions for the whole of the UK.
