Enjoyed my ferry trip between Newhavven and Dieppe. Plenty comfy seats to relax, plenty seats in the cafe and surrounding areas. Adequate choice of food and drink. The weather was beautiful so we managed to take some fabulous pictures outside. Piece of mind, will use again.

Good trip, excellent to be able to go across to Dieppe from Newhaven, as we live in Brighton. All went well on way out, altho it was quite busy. On way back we arrived early after another good crossing, but were then waiting for 30 minutes while they unpicked the problems of getting the few cars off the boat. As one year ago, we had the problem of them putting all the cars up in the mezzanine area, which meant that ll the freight seemed to have to get off first, some of which lorries were actually having to reverse for yards in tight spaces to get off. Only then could they bring the deck down to get the cars off. Having entered the harbour at 9.30, we were tied up by 10pm. We got off at around 10.40, ie 9.40 English time. Good food on board at the self service restaurant, lots of comfortable seating. Good service generally.

We recently travelled from Newhaven to Dieppe and back with DFDS Seaways and the whole experience was fantastic. It was easy to book online, we drove onto the ferry with no hassle, parked, and had a very pleasant journey across the channel. Lovely café on board for teas/coffees (great hot chocolate!) and snacks and also a perfectly adequate restaurant offering a good variety of choice including vegetarian (always a worry in France!!) Toilets were clean and tidy, there was a good lift service for my Mum who struggles with stairs and there were plenty of comfy lounge seats available on both journeys. Staff were lovely and friendly and kept the ship neat and tidy throughout the crossing. Well done DFDS!

Newhaven is a town located on the south coast of England in the county of East Sussex. Newhaven lies at the mouth of the River Ouse, in the valley the river has cut through the South Downs. Over the centuries the river has migrated between Newhaven and Seaford in response to the growth and decay of a shingle spit (shoal) at its mouth. The main part of the town is located on the west side of the river, there is also a residential area at Denton and Mount Pleasant on the slopes of the Downs to the east. Industrial areas lay on the east side of the river as do all three of the railway stations which serve Newhaven; Newhaven Town, Newhaven Harbour and the now redundant Newhaven Marine. Recent housing development has taken place at the West Quay, Harbour Heights and August Fields.
The Port of Newhaven is a minor but busy port. Its entrance is positioned between two piers, protected from the strong wind by a solid breakwater to the west. The port is the gateway to Dieppe on the south east coast of France. There are a few amenities at the port, including a convenience store and coffee shop. Facilities for disabled passengers are also available. There are specially designed rest rooms and wheelchair friendly areas in the terminal.
The port town of Dieppe is located in northern France and sits on the English Channel coast at the mouth of the Arques River, famous for its scallops. Dieppe's streets are filled with shops and restaurants, and the weekly market brings colour and tradition to the central square. The town was once an important port for the trading of spices and ivory, and its château museum is definitely worth a visit. The limestone and flint fortress, rebuilt on the west cliffs during the 15th century houses the museum collections : maritime, ivories sculpted by Dieppe craftsmen since the 16th century, paintings by Boudin, Lebourg and Pissaro, etchings by Braque. The Vieux-Château (Old Castle) contains the maritime history of the town and one of the finest collections of ivory carvings in Europe. For visitors who love the outdoors, there is an 18 hole golf course nearby making Dieppe a good choice for keen golfers and its sporting facilities also include tennis courts and other water sports.
The port, with its marina and fishing port, is in the very heart of the town. Trawlers and fishing boats provide a colourful spectacle which still attracts numerous painters.
