  • "surprisingly good"

    This trip back to the UK was a last minute decision - Calais being the usual exit port. However, the extra cost of the ticket was balanced by saving on time & fuel costs - particularly as I was headed to West Sussex to visit a friend, so Newhaven was a good port to land at. The port is very easy to get to, & the port staff were good at their jobs - even had sniffer dogs! The Ferry was clean, well looked after & pleasantly decorated. It left on time & arrived before the estimated time due to good waters. Staff were attentive, and someone came round to welcome us at our tables - not seen this before. All in all I was pleased with this journey & will use it again.

  • "Fine crossing"

    Nice crossing despite rough seas. Food was good, coffee a bit weak.

  • "Overcoming Pet Passport Problems"

    In spite of the fact that we have traveled back to UK with our two dogs on their pet passports, a simple mistake by a vet was picked up by the DFDS check in person which led to us missing our ferry, spending half the night in an hotel before reporting back at 0430 in time for the next ferry. It also involved a visit to a local vet in dieppe to have a UK vet's certificate, faxed to the DFDS office, authenticated by him. All this on the direction of DFRA. I cannot say enough about the help given by the lady who checked us in and the lady in reception at Dieppe. They organised the local vet visit and booked our hotel. Don't know their names but they need a pat on the back. The crossing was uneventful on a beautiful calm sunny day.

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.
