We were very nervous when we heard that there were due to be gail force winds across the UK the day we were due to sail from Dover to Dunkirk. There were reports on the news that Dover was shut and no ships were sailing. On arrival at Dover we were amazed that our ferry was only going to be 1.5 hours late despite the wide scale disruption across the county. The trip from Dover to Dunkirk was smooth, could not feel that that the waves outside were rather high. The facilities were great and the kids were kept entertained. Great crossing.

This is the third time I have used DFDS and I would be happy to use them again. We sailed on time, although the shop was small it had a bit of everything and the general facilities are all you'd expect. There was a small children's area with a TV showing cartoons to keep the young ones happy and the variety of food and drink on sale is sufficient for the short crossing.

Backed by its famous White Cliffs, Dover is located in Kent, on England's southeastern tip and is the UK's closest geographical point to Continental Europe. Every day of the year, frequent Cross Channel ferries travel between Dover and the French ports of Calais, Dunkirk and Boulogne.
One of the most important military towns in UK history, Dover is a rich tapestry of history. Few other towns can boast such a unique collection of relics and monuments dating back from the Bronze Age, the Roman Empire, the Saxon era, and virtually every other important historic period. While modern developments have seen many of Dover's important historical buildings swept away, there are still many important sites that must be preserved for future generations. The story of Dover is as old as civilization itself and we can only wonder at what future historical events this remarkable town will enter the history books for again.
Dunkerque is a harbour city in the northernmost part of France, in the département of Nord, 10 km from the Belgian border. Its name is derived from the West Flemish (Dutch) "duin" (dune) and "kerke" (church). Till the middle of the 20th century the city was situated in the Dutch language area; today the local Dutch dialect still can be found, but has been largely replaced by French. The area was much disputed between Spain, England, the Netherlands and France. In the Eighty Years' War the port was the base of the infamous Dunkerque Raiders until the city was conquered by Louis XIII of France in 1646. In World War II, heavy fighting took place around Dunkerque during the German invasion in 1940, but a lull in the action unexpectedly allowed a large number of French and British soldiers to escape to England. 338,226 men were evacuated amidst constant bombing (the miracle of Dunkerque, as Winston Churchill called it).
