We travelled as foot passengers on the Seven Sisters and it was all very efficient. Plenty of places to sit ( we chose the deck as it was a sunny day) and the staff were very helpful and pleasant. They took a great deal of trouble with some disabled passengers in particular. We arrived in Newhaven absolutely on time. Only slight complaint: the food was overpriced and not quite as good as it looked!

"Relaxed Return to the UK"
We find that to return to the UK via Dieppe to Newhaven with DFS is a good relaxing experience, we don't always travel out from the UK to Europe, it depends where we wish to travel to, however, our return voyage is generally with DFS on this route. We would recommend it to anyone.

The town and port of Dieppe is located in the northern France, in the Seine-Maritime department in the Haute-Normandie region. The town lies on the English Channel coast at the mouth of the Arques river which is famous for its scallops. There are plenty of things to do and see in the town including the Chateau de Dieppe which is now a museum and exhibition space. The museum's collection, which focuses on the town's maritime past, includes 17th and 18th century carvings and the furnishings and papers of Camille Saint-Saens. Also in the town is the Square du Canada, which is located close to the castle, where there is a recently erected monument commemorating the long relationship between the town and Canada.
Stretching along the harbour visitors will find a lovely promenade where they can observe the boats in the harbour at anchor. Dieppe is also well known for its sea food. Specialities include marmite diepoise, which is a fish and seafood stew cooked in cream, cider and onions, lightly flavoured with spices, and moules mariniere, which is mussels in a wine, shallot and cream sauce.
Dieppe has a ferry port, directly linked with the port of Newhaven on the English south coast, situated at the mouth of the river Ouse in East Sussex. The twice-daily service to the Port of Newhaven is operated by LD Lines.
The town and port of Newhaven is located on the south coast of England in the county of East Sussex, and lies at the mouth of the River Ouse, in the valley created by the river through the South Downs. A popular attraction in the town is Newhaven Fort, one of the Palmerston Forts, which was built in 1859 on Castle Hill on the recommendation of the Royal Commission in order to defend the town's port. The Fort is now a museum and was at the time the largest defence work ever built in Sussex. Situated close to Newhaven, and of particular interest with aviation lovers, is the village of Tide Mills which is where an experimental seaplane base was located. Operating from there and the nearby airfield at Telscombe Cliffs, the RAF base was equipped with Short Type 184 seaplanes and carried out anti-submarine patrols over the English Channel until the end of the First World War.
The Port of Newhaven is a minor but busy port and is the gateway to Dieppe on the south east coast of France. There are a few facilities at the port, including a convenience store and coffee shop. Facilities for disabled passengers are also available. There are specially designed rest rooms and wheelchair friendly areas in the terminal.
