"I keep coming back"
Reviewed 18 December 2013 by David
I use the ferry approximately every thre weeks, so obviously much to commend it. An economical crossing most of the year, a clean ship with enough basis facilities to ensure consistent comfort. I do however miss greatly the lack of wi fi, and sometimes wonder why the disembarkation at the Newhaven end takes so long. But I will keep on coming back for more knowing what to expect.

"Better than average"
Reviewed 11 December 2013 by Shaun
We were travelling early-December so it was unsurprisingly a soulless experience with very few passengers other than truck drivers. This meant no queues at the bar or cafeteria. The Transmanche ship was spotless, the staff polite and competent. Getting cars on and off ship was efficient. No complaints at all.

Crowded between high cliff headlands, Dieppe is an enjoyably small-scale port in the Seine-Maritime département of Haute-Normandie, France. During the nineteenth century, Parisians came here by train to take the sea air, promenading along the front. First recorded as a small fishing settlement in 1030, it was an important prize fought over during the Hundred Years' War. Dieppe housed the most advanced French school of cartography in the 16th century, and was the premiere port of the kingdom in the 17th century. On July 23, 1632 300 colonists headed for New France departed. At the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685, Dieppe lost 3000 of its citizens, who fled abroad. It was an important target in wartime; the town was largely destroyed by Anglo-Dutch naval bombardment in 1694 and rebuilt after 1696. On August 19, 1942, during the WWII, it was the site of the Dieppe Raid, a bloody landing by Allied soldiers, mainly Canadian.
Newhaven used to be named Meeching until the 16th Century when a great storm diverted the course of the Sussex Ouse so forming a NewHaven.
Wealden oak, wine and spirits from the continent and slab ice from the Baltic were shipped through the port. The town flourished with shipbuilding yards and breweries. The railway reached Newhaven in the 1840s and the first ferry service was established soon after, providing the shortest land- sea route between London and Paris. Both the ferry service and the Dieppe Raid have forged strong links between Newhaven and Dieppe. Each year the Mayor of Dieppe and entourage are the guests of Newhaven for a commemorative service to the 1,000 Canadian and Allied servicemen who embarked from Newhaven and died on the beaches of Dieppe. Their memory is preserved by an impressive granite plinth in a garden of remembrance by the harbour.
