  • "Will I Won't I"

    I recently travelled to UK, and then to France via Eurostar. (April 16) My travels took me to St Malo in France, and I had to decide whether to travel back to UK by Eurostar or the Brittany Ferry crossing. Decided that the Ferry crossing to Portsmouth ( there are other destinations) put me closer to The New Forest , my next stop, I'm so glad I did. Ferry crossing was easy, I had a two berth cabin, and although small was extremely comfortable and secure to leave luggage and wander the ships facilities with ease. Fantastic service, professional and helpful. Fully catered souvenirs etc and both ports were clean and secure. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend, P. from Australia.

  • "St Malo to Portsmouth"

    We had a nice smooth crossing. The booking was easy, as was the boarding in St Malo. We had an outside cabin, clean and roomy with a good shower. The main resteraunt was friendly with a good choise of menus. Opted for the dinner buffet. In the morning we chose the breakfast buffet menu. Dis -embarking went as smooth as the loading. Excellent value, would use this route again.

  • "Experience on Brittany Ferries"

    My first journey on Brittany Ferries was undertaken in February 2016 from St Malo to Portsmouth. I was most impressed with the courtesy of the crew, the cleanliness of the boat and the air of quiet efficiency. This was in great contrast to my experience on other cross-channel ferries over the years. Not least, I was also impressed with the general behaviour of the French schoolchildren who were on board in large numbers. Would that their English counterparts could be so well behaved!

St Malo Guide

The French city and seaport of St Malo is located in Brittany in the north west of France and lies on the English Channel coast. It was built on an island of granite and has a unique atmosphere, wonderful scenery and lovely beaches. St Malo is popular with tourists from across Europe although for some visitors it is just the start or the end of a vacation to Brittany as they use the town's port to get too and from England. The town is widely regarded as the prettiest channel port in France with its cobbled streets, hotels, bars, restaurants and shops. There are streets and squares lined with tall mansions which are in turn enclosed by a complete circuit of ramparts. The modern harbour now connects the citadel to the mainland.

The Port of St Malo has two new ferry terminals which have good passenger facilities including gift shops, cafes and bureau de change. Ferry services from the port depart to Poole, Portsmouth and Weymouth in England, via the Channel Islands.

Portsmouth Guide

The city of Portsmouth is located on the south coast of England in the county of Hampshire. The city, which lies on the English Channel coast, has a long and illustrious maritime history and has connections with the Royal Navy that goes back centuries. The city was also one of the world's greatest shipbuilding centres and constructed the world's first ever dry dock in the 15th century, which is still in use today. The city is still an important base for the Royal Navy and is home to a number of important historical ships including the crowning glory of Admiral Lord Nelson's flagship, HMS Victory.

Portsmouth was significantly bombed during the Second World War because of its strategic importance, and as a result the city is a mix of old and new buildings with some of the most historic areas being the Hard and the Point. The nearby suburb of Southsea is a popular destination for families and has a lovely stretch of beach, two piers and a good selection of bars, cafes, restaurants and a theme park at Clarence Pier.

Ferry services from the city's port depart to Le Havre, Bilbao, Cherbourg, Caen, St Malo, St Helier, St Peter Port and Ryde.
