Adventure Awaits

Our Newhaven-Dieppe crossing is great for those based in the South West of England. Dieppe is situated in the heart of Normandy, with amazing beaches and national parks such as Marais du Cotentin et du Bessin Natural Regional Park which boasts unspoilt landscapes and atmospheric cliff sides. Take your bikes and cycle through The Forest of Brocéliande in neighbouring Brittany, reportedly the forest of legendary King Arthur. Or visit to the mystical Mont Saint Michel which seems to appear out of the water like a mirage. If food and drink are more your style, be sure to try some fresh Breton oysters and follow Normandy's famous Cheese and Cider Route, stocking up on camembert, Pont L'Évêque, Calvados and cider along the way.

We also offer two ferry routes from Dover to France, one to Calais and another to Dunkirk. All our ports are ideally situated for a driving holiday to explore all France and further afield has to offer.

Your experience onboard

With travel changing we’ve implemented some new measures on our Newhaven to Dieppe ships so your sailing can run as smoothly as possible. Passenger capacity has been reduced so there is more room for you to move freely onboard and we encourage social distancing at all times. Boarding and disembarking is staggered which reduced congestion and hand sanitiser is placed across the ship for regular use. Face masks must also be worn during boarding and in public areas during your crossing. These measures are in place to ensure you arrive at your destination, relaxed and ready to enjoy your break.
