It became my preferred way to chill: riding into one big boat, let it drive me home and enjoy the view with a glass of inexpensive gin and tonic :)

The whole direct ferries process is excellent. The only shortcomng, expressed in earlier reviews, is that for those using hire cars it is not pissble to provide the make and plate number as requested in the booking system. No doubt this could be dealt with.

DFDS do the business. My recent trip went well and was on time. My only gripe is the state of the toilet cubicles - broken locks and floods at the start of a voyage - not acceptable in my view.

The French town and major sea port of Calais is located in northern France and lies on the English Channel coast, around 21 miles across the English Channel from the English Port of Dover. On a clear day it is possible to see the White Cliffs of Dover, across the Strait of Dover. Calais' old town, known as Calais-Nord, is surrounded by canals and harbours and lies on an artificial island. The more modern part of Calais, known as St-Pierre, is located to the south of the old town.
Visitors to the town can take in the Tour du Guet which is situated in the Place d'Armes in the old town. Built in the 13th century, the structure was originally a water tower which was subsequently used as a lighthouse until 1848.
The port of Calais is well known to many visitors from the UK and is the 4th largest port in France, by passenger numbers. It is the main gateway into France for many UK visitors and is less than 3 hours by car from Paris, Brussels and London and is connected to several motorways. On average a ship departs from Calais every 30 minutes, with around 50 departures to Dover each day, with a crossing time of about 75 minutes.
The town and port of Dover is located on the south east coast of England, in the county of Kent. The major ferry port lies on the English Channel coast, at its narrowest point between England and France. Dover is the world's busiest passenger port with roughly 16 million travellers, 2 million lorries, nearly 3 million cars and motorcycles and 86,000 coaches passing through it each year. Providing an iconic backdrop to the town are its white chalk cliffs and are an impressive sight when entering the port by ferry.
A popular tourist attraction in the town is the 12th century Dover Castle which stands guard over the town. The medieval castle has been described as the "Key to England" because of its defensive importance over the centuries, and is also England's largest castle. Today, the castle is a designated Scheduled Monument which means that it is a nationally important historic building and archaeological site that is protected against unauthorised change. It is also a Grade I listed building and an internationally recognised important structure. The castle, its secret tunnels and surrounding land are all now owned by English Heritage.
