The official name of the country internationally known as Holland is the Kingdom of the Netherlands, or just the Netherlands.
Bordered by Belgium to its south/south west side and Germany to its east and north, almost a third of the country’s boundary is coastline (around 450 kilometres).
Amsterdam gets the headlines, but the Netherlands is so much more than just its capital city and features numerous impressive destinations to explore including Rotterdam, The Hague and Arnhem in the countryside as well as the medieval towns of Delft and Utrecht.
If you looking to get to Holland by ferry then there’s a choice of crossings available from the UK, whether you are travelling with a vehicle or on foot. There are conveniently scheduled sailings from the south east and north east of England running year round and all sailings are operated by large, modern luxurious ferries.
If you’re looking for more flexibility and a larger choice of sailings and at the same time don’t mind a longer drive then you can also take the ferry to France or Belgium and drive across to Holland.
Taking the ferry to Holland also provides an ideal gateway for onward travel around northern Europe, especially for getting to countries with no direct connection from the UK such as Germany and Poland.
Recently travelled on the Stena Britannica from Harwich to Hook of Holland - and I have to say I was impressed! The ships are brand new so everything was top notch from the restaurants through to the bar areas, drinks were reasonably priced on board as was food in the buffet restaurant - there was also A ‘la Carte style dining however we did not visit there. Cabins were spotlessly clean and well equipped, with wider beds than normal ferries and with the addition of flat screen TVs and free Wi-Fi internet - makes this an above average ferry crossing. I would without a doubt use this crossing again.Read More Read Less
"Spirit of Britain"
I am a regular ferry traveller between the UK and France and took the opportunity to travel on P&O's new ferry The Spirit of Britain shortly after she came into service. She is a large modern fast ferry and on one occasion when there was a considerable swell in the channel she took it in her stride and brushed the waves aside without any noticeable movement of the ship, something that is not always the case with the smaller older ferries on that route. Onboard facilities and catering were excellent with friendly and helpful staff, boarding and disemabarking was fast and efficient due to multiple loading/unloading ramps.Read More Read Less
We''ve been twice, good cabin upgrade recommended. Had our own food, sarnies and cupa soup. Cheap booze in shop, reasonable prices in bar. Take a travel-kettle & cups etc. Bruges is fantastic! a mini Venice, go for it.Read More Read Less
"Great trip - Sunday 18th September 2011"
As part of a 1,000 mile charity cycle ride from Suffolk to the south of France myself and 2 friends took the ferry crossing from Dover to Calais with access to the private lounge and restaurant. We took the 9:40 crossing which was perfect for our schedule as we needed a hearty breakfast and space to relax. The boarding and departure process was really quick, the ferry on time and the lounge and restaurant offered attentive service and a fantastic full English breakfast. Having previously used the tunnel this is definitly the better way to travel! Nick MillsRead More Read Less
