Travelling by boat was very comfortable. Disembarking in Dunkirk was problematic because it took way too long before we could leave the ship and the road from the port to the highway was crowded with trucks and cars all trying to make their way to their destination. We had to give way to other vehicles on the roundabout, which made it even slower. So the infrastructure in Dunkirk needs improvement. Best regards, Roel Bleeker

Reviewed 14 September 2014 by Cornelis
We booked our tickets for the outward journey from Dover to Dunkerque on the website. Everything was excellent and fee which included VIP lounge access was very low. We booked the return tickets at the port and they were €32 more expensive (without VIP lounge access). This information is not clearly displayed on the website. Alsothe clarification of what exactly we were paying for was not given. In addition, the Ferry at 14:00 was canceled. We had so many delays. Everything else on board was well arranged.

Located in the Nord department in northern France, the town and port of Dunkirk is around 10 km from the Belgian border. This industrial city depends heavily on its steel industry, on food processing, oil refining, ship building and its chemical industries. Dunkirk is France's third largest harbour after Le Havre and Marseille. Visitors to the town will find many things to do and see. The Musee Portuaire contains exhibits of images concerning the history of the port, the Musee des Beaux-Arts contains a large collection of Flemish, Italian and French paintings and sculptures, and the carnival of Dunkirk.
Unsurprisingly, seafood features heavily on the menus of this coastal town's restaurants. Located just a short distance from the Belgian border, moules and frites are popular as are oysters and many other Flemish dishes. If shopping is what you're after then head to the town centre where you will find a lovely mix of boutique shops around Place Jean Bart. Also pop into Centre Marine shopping mall to shop in French fashion stores. There are also a couple of hypermarkets a short distance from the town.
A single ferry route operates from the port of Dunkirk to the port of Dover in England with 11 sailings per day.
The town and port of Dover is located on the south east coast of England, in the county of Kent. The major ferry port lies on the English Channel coast, at its narrowest point between England and France. Dover is the world's busiest passenger port with roughly 16 million travellers, 2 million lorries, nearly 3 million cars and motorcycles and 86,000 coaches passing through it each year. Providing an iconic backdrop to the town are its white chalk cliffs and are an impressive sight when entering the port by ferry.
A popular tourist attraction in the town is the 12th century Dover Castle which stands guard over the town. The medieval castle has been described as the "Key to England" because of its defensive importance over the centuries, and is also England's largest castle. Today, the castle is a designated Scheduled Monument which means that it is a nationally important historic building and archaeological site that is protected against unauthorised change. It is also a Grade I listed building and an internationally recognised important structure. The castle, its secret tunnels and surrounding land are all now owned by English Heritage.
