We travelled in the early morning. The first advantage of this route is that the roads are quieter on both sides of the channel. We were pleased with the straightforward simplicity of electronic ticketing, check-in, loading onto the ferry. The staff were polite and friendly, particularly those serving us in the bar, and restaurant. The crossing was smooth, and we docked and disembarked at the times that we expected to.

"Quick & Friendly"

We had scheduled to take the ferry at 6 p.m. on Saturday 21st of June. Due to the strike of the French railway workers we arrived only one day later in Dieppe. The friendly staff changed our bookings without any problems and without additional costs! The crossing to Newhaven was convenient. The only wormwood: the TV life from the world cup in Brazil worked only once in a while (there is maybe a technical reason behind).

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.
