With up to 54 daily sailings between Dover and our French ports of Dunkirk and Calais, you and your group can choose the perfect crossing time to suit. Crossings take just 90 minutes to Calais and 2 hours to Dunkirk, meaning you can get straight back on the road and head to your destination.

Our Newhaven-Dieppe route is a great way for you and your group to head to western France and Normandy with your vehicle. Dieppe port is in an ideal location to enjoy the beautiful northern French coastline and Dieppe is also the nearest port to Paris, should you wish to head to the French capital.
