  • "Very Pleasant"

    A very pleasant experience apart from check-in.I had not used a ferry in Europe for many years and things have changed so i walked to the ferry terminal the day before my trip to pick up my ticket where I was asked by some far eastern female (she told me she was from that area) for my ID card so I gave her my debit card which I had used to pay for the trip.She said no I want your ID card this is just a blue card.I said English people do not have ID cards-she said I did not know you were English as it is not written on your forehead.She then demanded my passport saying something about controlling me. Passports are for immigration purposes and not for uniformed clerks! She really needs to work on her attitude and her weight!

  • "Voyage"

    Excellent crossing, going we had a cabin which was very reasonably sized the only downside was people knocking on the wall & we could hear them talking. For the return we had an excellent crossing, food & drinks very good & comfortable.

  • "Ferry trip Dieppe to Newhaven"

    Please Direct Ferries can you please look at putting the post code for the ferry terminal on the confirmation sheet so your customers can put it straight into their satnav. The trip its self was fine apart from slightly over priced food and drink but on arrival at Newhaven the loading ramp was out of action so we all had to sit there for another 30-40 minutes while it was repaired. Not a huge problem in its own but to sit there having to look at the Newhaven ferry terminal with its tatty roof and a broken down portacabin was embarrassing for us Brits. Please get someone to dispose of the cabin and see if they can tidy up the building. I maybe Scottish but I'm also proud to be British.

Dieppe Guide

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.

Newhaven Guide

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.
