  • "Great service"

    All the staff are very helpful and despite the delay caused by strong currents (outwith their control) they efficiently dealt with any problems and were helpful from start to finish

  • "Miam!!!"

    We use ferry's between France and England quite a lot .. maybe 4 to 6 times a year ... and this journey is the best. Brittany provide a really pleasurable and comfortable journey, and most importantly, have excellent catering services. A high point of our journey was to relax and enjoy the buffet with a bottle of Gewurtztraminer. All staff from arrival, deck/parking and on passenger levels and restaurants were very pleasant and welcoming. We will definitely be using the ferry again.

    We enjoyed the journey and although it was long it was relaxing. Coming back was better with an overnight crossing.

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.
