Dover Dunkirk Ferry reviews

  • "Seating"

    was disappointed with the seating, people stretched out across them and also lying on the floor, why not have reclining chairs and more seating too.

Dover Guide

The English town and port of Dover is located in the county of Kent in the south east of England. The town lies on the English Channel coast at its narrowest point between England and France. This narrow stretch of the English Channel is called the Strait of Dover.

In and around the town there are many things for visitors to see and do. In memory of the spot where Bleriot landed following the first cross channel flight in 1909, the Bleriot Memorial is an outline of the aircraft flown set into the ground. Also, and overlooking the town, is Dover Castle which is the largest castle in England. It was founded in the 12th century and has been described as the "Key to England" due to its defensive significance throughout its history.

The Port of Dover is the world's busiest passenger port, with 16 million travellers, 2.1 million lorries, 2.8 million cars and motorcycles and 86,000 coaches passing through it each year. It is the main port of departure for travellers from the UK to France and beyond into mainland Europe. Services are operated by P&O Ferries and DFDS Seaways to Calais and Dunkirk.


Dunkirk Guide

The town of Dunkirk is located in northern France and its harbour is the third largest in France, after those of Le Havre and Marseille. The town is a former fishing village but today relies heavily on the port and related harbour activities.

The town's heritage has strong links with the fishing industry and the town's Port Museum tells the story of the history of Dunkirk's maritime and fishing past. The town's museums also reflect on the fact that Dunkirk is a war time historic town and contain a wealth of information about the war and especially of Operation Dynamo.

Much of the town is new, having been rebuilt following the end of World War II there remains the occasional examples of historical structures including the town hall and Le Laac outdoor sculpture garden and museum. As a coastal town, Dunkirk offers a fabulous sandy beach with seafront brasseries and activities.

From the town's port, ferry services operate to Dover in England with 12 sailings each day.
