"Dover - Dunkirk"
Reviewed 13 September 2014 by Graham
Was a very smooth crossing. Cannot fault anything - all went to time etc. We had a cooked breakfast which we did not think was over-expensive. Would certainly recommend this way of crossing the channel.

I really enjoy going on the ferry. It gives me a chance to relax before the drive in France - I can sleep, read or walk about the boat. The food is good and the other facilities are ok; but there could be a better range of things to buy on board which seem to be drink; perfume etc, sweets and tobacco. I am always impressed at how quickly we are boarded and disembarked. It is a chore to have to cross water to get to the Continent with a car and I can't think of a better way to do it than with DFDS. The cost of the crossing has not increased dramatically since I first started driving myself to France about 10 years ago so I am not sure how the splendid service can be delivered for the price.

The boats were comfortable and we like the seating by the large windows; good choice of food. The boat was quite late leaving ,which we can cope with, but it would have been good to have been told what time we were expected to board. As it was a very hot day we had to stay with the car in case we were supposed to be boarding! Even when the boat is on time it would be good to be given a boarding time on arrival.

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).
