Due to a surprising lack of traffic across Europe, we arrived far too early for the ferry we had booked, at a highly inconvenient time of night. I really must thank the staff in Dunkirk for the speed and efficiency with which they sorted matters out - free of charge! The boat over was, as usual, comfortable and efficiently managed.

We have not used a ferry to cross the Channel in a long time, we normally use the Tunnel. But would defiantly use again especially as it cost a lot less. Just loved being able to get a meal etc. on board before continuing our journey.

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).
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.
