MUST SEE NORMANDY - JUST A FERRY RIDE AWAY
Date: 23 May 2018
This summer DFDS is offering holidaymakers wanting to explore Dieppe, in the heart of Normandy and its scenic surroundings, crossings from just £54 for 2 people each way, or £61 for 2 adults and 2 children each way.
Passengers travelling from Newhaven can reach this beautiful region of France in just 4 short hours, making favourites such as Rouen and Honfleur within easy reach of the UK.
Holidaymakers can ensure their trip gets off to the best start by making the most of DFDS' extensive on-board facilities including self-service restaurant, bar and children's soft play and video games areas. Budding marine biologists can also join on-board experts from marine life charity ORCA and learn about the local wildlife in the English Channel as well as wildlife watching from the deck.
Families looking to tour the region can enjoy trips to the historic Mont-Saint-Michel, visit the famed Bayeux Tapestry as well as spending time exploring the many cobbled streets and winding ramparts which offer spectacular coastal views. From 26 May to 10 June visitors to the region can also join in the celebrations of the D-Day Landings by enjoying the abundance of firework displays along the coast, military parades, parachute drops and more!
For couples wishing to make the most of a romantic weekend away the tranquillity and beauty of Giverny, nestled on the banks of the Seine, is the perfect spot. Its beautiful landscape was the inspiration for Monet's impressionist Water Lilies series and is perfect for couples wanting to spend lazy days dipping in and out of cafes.
