"Who needs planes"
Overall, my experience was excellent. The outward journey was on time, facilities were very good: sod the plane, I say. I'd much rather take longer and have room to wander about, eat, relax. The homeward journey didn't go quite so well: it was about 45 minutes late departing, and worse, when we reached Harwich foot passengers were kept on board for almost another 45 minutes, with no communication from staff as to why or what was going on. This meant we all missed the train and had to get a later one, leading to everyone getting home much later than intended. Even with that, though, I'd take the ferry again for all its many charms.

Located in the English county of Essex, the town and port of Harwich lies on the North Sea coast, on the estuaries of the River Stour and River Orwell.

In 1652 the town became a naval base and was heavily fortified with Harwich Redoubt, Beacon Hill Battery and Bath Side Battery. Containing many historic buildings, Harwich's old town has been declared a conservation area.
Harwich has also been home to some notable residents including Christopher Jones, the master and part owner of the Mayflower, the diarist Samuel Pepys was an MP for the town and Christopher Newport who founded Jamestown, Virginia, came from Harwich.

The Hook of Holland is a town located in the west of The Netherlands and lies at the mouth of the Nieuwe Waterweg Ship Canal that flows to the north sea. The town, which derives its name from its geographical location in the south western corner of Holland, is of significant historical significance. Its location meant that it was used by the Germans for its strategies that required the use of a harbour. However, aside from this it is a beautiful town to visit and has some lovely beaches with one sandy beach stretching from the town to Scheveningen, almost 18 km away. Along this beach visitors will find sand dunes and some designated cycle routes which makes the area perfect to be explored by bicycle. Visitors should be warned though as one section of the beach is used by naturists!
