I took my grandchildren back to Newhaven recently at the end of the half-term holidays and then returned on the next sailing. I had booked a cabin for the return and was delighted when I was offered an upgrade to an outside cabin. The cabin was much better than expected for such a short voyage and I appreciated having my own shower room and wc. A few hours sleep was needed for a 4 am docking and subsequent drive home. My grand-daughter is 15 and very responsible, but the regulations do not permit her to travel alone and therefore a supervisory service to permit children of secondary school age to travel by themselves would be a great asset. I would then be able to see my grandchildren more often.

I have used this ferry about 15 times this year. I find the staff very friendly, the journey always punctual, and the trip very comfortable. Simon Leadsom

We elected to use this crossing as it was the nearest destination point to where my son lives in UK. Nice short crossing on an uncrowded and clean ship. We elected to have a cabin just so we could stretch out after driving from Portugal, via a visit to my son in France. It was well worth it to have a bit of peace and quiet and a short sleep, after a tiring journey. My one gripe would be that getting around Rouen to drive to Dieppe was a total nightmare. We ended up driving the last 70 kilometres on a "D" road in low cloud and rain, as the signposting for Dieppe was not good at all. Maybe DFDS could consider Le Havre or Caen as an alternative sailing point, much easier to get to.

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.
Located on the south coast of England in the county of East Sussex, Newhaven lies at the mouth of the River Ouse, in the valley the river has cut through the South Downs. Newhaven Fort, one of the Palmerston Forts, was built on Castle Hill on the recommendation of the 1859 Royal Commission to defend the growing harbour. It was the largest defence work ever built in Sussex and is now open as a museum. The adjacent village of Tide Mills was the site of an experimental seaplane base at the head of the beach. The first formation of No. 242 Squadron RAF was on 15 August 1918 from numbers 408, 409 and 514 Flights at the seaplane station at Newhaven. Operating from there and the nearby airfield at Telscombe Cliffs, it 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. The port is the gateway to Dieppe on the south east coast of France. There are a few amenities 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.
