"A relaxing experience"
Reviewed 07 December 2013 by John
Very friendly staff at both ferry ports and both ports were easy to get into and out of. Only a relatively small ship but it had all the facilities to make it a comfortable and enjoyable trip. The value for money is excellent and disembarking at Dieppe is ideal both for travelling west into Brittany of heading south to the Limousin and most other points west of centre.

A good crossing between Newhaven and Dieppe. The ship was only about a quarter full and was very quiet. Both the out bound and return trips were right on time and very good value. £95.00 for three adults and a Honda CRV return journey, so it worked out at about £16.00 each per crossing, Great value and a very smooth crossing. I carn't fault it in any way.

"The bags were delayed and the bus was in a hurry"
Reviewed 18 September 2013 by Gerard
It was well organised. The staff was very nice and the sea was calm. However, the trailers with the luggages were 20 minutes late for the inbound crossing. The bus left and I had to pay a taxi.

Newhaven used to be named Meeching until the 16th Century when a great storm diverted the course of the Sussex Ouse so forming a NewHaven.
Wealden oak, wine and spirits from the continent and slab ice from the Baltic were shipped through the port. The town flourished with shipbuilding yards and breweries. The railway reached Newhaven in the 1840s and the first ferry service was established soon after, providing the shortest land- sea route between London and Paris. Both the ferry service and the Dieppe Raid have forged strong links between Newhaven and Dieppe. Each year the Mayor of Dieppe and entourage are the guests of Newhaven for a commemorative service to the 1,000 Canadian and Allied servicemen who embarked from Newhaven and died on the beaches of Dieppe. Their memory is preserved by an impressive granite plinth in a garden of remembrance by the harbour.
Crowded between high cliff headlands, Dieppe is an enjoyably small-scale port in the Seine-Maritime département of Haute-Normandie, France. During the nineteenth century, Parisians came here by train to take the sea air, promenading along the front. First recorded as a small fishing settlement in 1030, it was an important prize fought over during the Hundred Years' War. Dieppe housed the most advanced French school of cartography in the 16th century, and was the premiere port of the kingdom in the 17th century. On July 23, 1632 300 colonists headed for New France departed. At the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685, Dieppe lost 3000 of its citizens, who fled abroad. It was an important target in wartime; the town was largely destroyed by Anglo-Dutch naval bombardment in 1694 and rebuilt after 1696. On August 19, 1942, during the WWII, it was the site of the Dieppe Raid, a bloody landing by Allied soldiers, mainly Canadian.
