Dieppe Newhaven Ferry reviews

  • "DFDS "

    Poor signage on the way into the port at Dieppe was minor problem. Good embarkation process. Good crossing. Took a while to leave the ship despite low numbers on board. And border staff took a long time. Left the port an hour after docking. None of the issues rated to DFDS.

  • "Comfortable and relaxing trip"

    4 hours went quickly on this ferry service. The restaurant and shop are small, but there is everything you need for a short journey. Suitable for families with small children or holiday makers in general. There's a lift if you are mobility reduced.

  • "Good service reasonably priced."

    For me one of the best crossing routes Newhaven-Dieppe. Easy access both sides of channel and smooth check ins. The ships are well set out and food is pretty good and not badly priced. Not fancy but gets you across with time to have a break from driving but not so long you go mad!

Dieppe Guide

The town and port of Dieppe is located in the northern France, in the Seine-Maritime department in the Haute-Normandie region. The town lies on the English Channel coast at the mouth of the Arques river which is famous for its scallops. There are plenty of things to do and see in the town including the Chateau de Dieppe which is now a museum and exhibition space. The museum's collection, which focuses on the town's maritime past, includes 17th and 18th century carvings and the furnishings and papers of Camille Saint-Saens. Also in the town is the Square du Canada, which is located close to the castle, where there is a recently erected monument commemorating the long relationship between the town and Canada.

Stretching along the harbour visitors will find a lovely promenade where they can observe the boats in the harbour at anchor. Dieppe is also well known for its sea food. Specialities include marmite diepoise, which is a fish and seafood stew cooked in cream, cider and onions, lightly flavoured with spices, and moules mariniere, which is mussels in a wine, shallot and cream sauce.

Dieppe has a ferry port, directly linked with the port of Newhaven on the English south coast, situated at the mouth of the river Ouse in East Sussex. The twice-daily service to the Port of Newhaven is operated by LD Lines.

Newhaven Guide

The town and port of Newhaven is located on the south coast of England in the county of East Sussex, and lies at the mouth of the River Ouse, in the valley created by the river through the South Downs. A popular attraction in the town is Newhaven Fort, one of the Palmerston Forts, which was built in 1859 on Castle Hill on the recommendation of the Royal Commission in order to defend the town's port. The Fort is now a museum and was at the time the largest defence work ever built in Sussex. Situated close to Newhaven, and of particular interest with aviation lovers, is the village of Tide Mills which is where an experimental seaplane base was located. Operating from there and the nearby airfield at Telscombe Cliffs, the RAF base was equipped with Short Type 184 seaplanes and carried out anti-submarine patrols over the English Channel until the end of the First World War.

The Port of Newhaven is a minor but busy port and is the gateway to Dieppe on the south east coast of France. There are a few facilities 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.
