"Excellent experience! "
We had a very good ride both ways. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Both ferries were on time and found them clean and with decent food options. Will repeat it as l found it a good cheap and stress free way to get to the continent.

"Ideal channel crossing"
The great thing about Newhaven and Dieppe is that they are both relatively small ports and therefore a much better experience. Easy to find, no fuss (apart from the expected tight security). It is a long time since I went on a ferry as we usually take the Eurotunnel and I enjoyed the crossing. Newhaven is easy to get to and only 2 hours from London. The crossing was about 4 hours (although late departing due to the tight security controls of vehicles coming off the ferry before we could board), leaving a 3 hour drive to get to my destination just south of Normandy. This was a good balance between driving and the channel crossing. The ferry was great with choice of seating and being able to walk around the decks. Dieppe is a really pretty port and as you drive off the boaty, the winding road takes you up to the top of the chalk cliffs. We will definitely take this crossing again.

Also on the east side of the river are the town's industrial areas and the town's three railway stations; Newhaven Town, Newhaven Harbour and Newhaven Marine, which is no longer in use. Recent housing development has taken place at the West Quay, Harbour Heights and August Fields.
The entrance to Newhaven Port, which is a minor busy port, is located between two piers which are protected from the strong wind by a solid breakwater to the west. Services operating out of the port depart to Dieppe on the south east coast of France. passenger facilities at the port are a bit limited but do include a convenience store and a coffee shop. There are also facilities for disabled passengers with wheelchair accessible toilets.

The 15th century limestone and flint fortress was constructed on the town's west cliffs and today contains collections related to maritime, ivories sculptured by craftsmen from the town since the 16th century, paintings by Boudin, Lebourg and Pissaro.

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.
