  • "Great end to the trip!"

    Decided to take the overnight to Harwich on tye way back from a Euro tour. Ship was spotless, food was great and the cabins were verging on luxury for a ferry. Had such a nights sleep I will certainly consider over the shorter ferry to the continent next time.

Hook of Holland Guide

The Hook of Holland, sometimes called De Hoek, is a town located in the west of The Netherlands and a popular ferry gateway to Harwich, England, a route currently operated by Stena Line. The town's name is a reference to its location in the south west corner of Holland, at the mouth of the Nieuwe Waterweg ship canal that eventually flows to the North Sea.

The Hook of Holland ferry terminal has a few passenger facilities including a convenience store, a cafe and bar. The primary ferry route, taking you to Harwich, is run by world class ships boasting shops, cafes, foreign exchange services and a casino on board.

A popular visitor attraction in the town is the Coastal Defence Museum at Fort aan den Hoek Van Holland, which was built in the late 19th century to defend the newly excavated Nieuwe Waterweg against attack from the sea.


Harwich Guide

The town and port of Harwich is located in the English county of Essex and is the United Kingdom's second busiest passenger ferry port, with Stena Line operating the popular ferry route to and from the Hook of Holland.

Passenger facilities in the Harwich ferry terminal have been upgraded recently and now include waiting lounges, a bureau de change, cafes and restaurants. There is also an efficient and streamlined check-in system, significantly reducing waiting times for foot and vehicle passengers.

There is far more to Harwich than its port and there are many things for visitors to do and see. Popular attractions include the Ha'Penny Pier Visitor Centre on the Quay, where there are guided walking tours throughout the summer that take in sites including the Electric Palace Cinema, Redoubt Fort and a number of museums and lighthouses.
