Ferries to France

For a relaxing journey to France, you'd do worse than take a Ferry. Travelling by sea to France, your holiday will start as soon as you leave home. Sit back, relax, and watch the stunning sea views as you glide across the English Channel.

Many people choose to travel to France by Ferry for other reasons. Unlike on the Eurotunnel Le Shuttle or Eurostar, there are often a number of resturants, bars, and duty paid outlets (especially useful if you are not visiting a tabac in France) which offer up to 50% off UK high street prices.

Ferry crossings take as little as 75 minutes on the most popular route - Dover to Calais and can be made with a number of ferry operators.
