A very pleasant journey to France with my car, made even better by the efficient & calm way that BF dealt with my booking when I missed an earlier ferry. The facilities were clean and excellent. Particularly good food at a very reasonable price - fab when it is an evening arrival.

It was a fast ship which arrived in good time at our destination. There were a lot of people on board. So I suppose it is to be expected that there will be limited space for a hot breakfast despite the early start. However the distribution of what food there was - croissants and sandwiches - was very haphazard between the different food stations. Consequently ours was continuously running out. Not a big thing but kept us waiting unnecessarily. Otherwise an excellent experience.

The English city of Portsmouth is located on the south coast of England, in the county of Hampshire. It is the UK's only island city and is situated around 100 km to the south west of London and 30 km to the east of Southampton. The city's long history is inextricably linked to the sea. It is home to the oldest dry dock in the world still in use and also to famous ships such as HMS Victory, Admiral Lord Nelson's flagship, the Mary Rose and HMS Warrior. The city is also home to the Royal Marine Commandoes and to a naval base.
The city's port is one of the best connected ports in the United Kingdom, serving nine different destinations. To the south of the Naval Base, you will find the Isle of Wight (Ryde) Passenger Ferry Terminal. The Continental Ferry Terminal is served by ferry services to Le Havre in France and Bilbao in Spain. There are also daily crossings to Cherbourg, Caen and St Malo in France, St Helier in Jersey, St Peter Port in Guernsey and to Ryde on the Isle of Wight.
The town and port of Cherbourg is located on the Cotentin Peninsular in the Manche department of Normandy in the north west of France. The town's port is perhaps best known as a cross channel port serving ferries travelling between the United Kingdom and France. One of the most popular attractions in the town is the Museum T. Henry which was founded in 1831 following a donation of more than 160 paintings by Henry, commissioner of the Royal Museums. Today, the museum has a collection of 300 paintings by French, Dutch and Italian artists stretching back from the present day to the Middle Ages. Contained in the collection are "The Ascent to Calvary" by Murrillo, "Christ Died" which is attributed to Filippino Lippi, and the "Conversion of St. Augustine" by Beato Angelico.
Also in the town and popular with visitors is the 12th century Abbey du Voeu which was dedicated to the Virgin. The church was consecrated in 1181, during the reign of Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine, who were present at the ceremony.
Ferry services from the port depart to Poole and Portsmouth in England and to Rosslare in Ireland.
