Newhaven Dieppe Ferry reviews

  • "Newhaven to Dieppe - A little gem"

    I have just completed a return trip to France using the Newhaven to Dieppe crossing, in July 2022. Contrary to all the horror stories of Dover-Calais, this trip was relaxed, on time and an absolute joy. The boarding process was quick and easy, the disembarkation was similarly fast and easy. I was on the road with 30 minutes of the boat arriving at Dieppe and I was home in Surrey within 75 minutes of the ship arriving at Newhaven! And remember they have to make the ship safe to offload vehicles, which takes 15 minutes at least. And the 4 hour crossing allows you to relax and make the sea crossing part of the adventure.

  • "Mixed Feelings"

    The crossing was lovely. The ferry is reasonably comfortable and food etc OK. Not brilliant but not a disaster. But the embarkation and disembarking for foot passengers is really poor. At Dieppe I , with others, was left waiting for ages and ages for our luggage. I have mobility issues so this was really difficult. Also there is no bus, taxi, or navette to Central this is extremely awkward. There us seemingly one taxi bit nearly an hour wait. Getting off at Newhaven was worse as we had to walk sideways by parked trucks and vehicles. Very unsafe. Staff were all polite and friendly. Any problems are management ones.

  • "Great quality service, efficient, easy to book and super comms."

    Very easy to adjust the requirements until you find the right route at the best price. Great communications too. The ferry company was brilliant, all staff were so polite and helpful. The quality of the food was excellent too, it gave us a really good start and end to our holiday! Getting on and off the ferry was efficient, it was only passport control the made it slow, which the ferry company can do nothing about.

The English town and port of Newhaven is located in the county of East Sussex, on the south coast of England. The town lies at the mouth of the River Ouse, in the valley the river has cut through the South Downs, and on the English Channel coast.

Located on the west side of the river is the main part of the town and to the east of the river are the residential areas at Denton and Mount Pleasant on the slopes of the Downs. Also on the east side of the river are the town's industrial areas and the town's three railway stations; Newhaven Town, Newhaven Harbour and Newhaven Marine, which is no longer in use. Recent housing development has taken place at the West Quay, Harbour Heights and August Fields.

The entrance to Newhaven Port, which is a minor busy port, is located between two piers which are protected from the strong wind by a solid breakwater to the west. Services operating out of the port depart to Dieppe on the south east coast of France. passenger facilities at the port are a bit limited but do include a convenience store and a coffee shop. There are also facilities for disabled passengers with wheelchair accessible toilets.

Dieppe Guide

The town and port of Dieppe is located in the north of France
and lies on the English Channel coast, at the mouth of the Arques River, which is famous for its scallops. The town's streets and brimming with restaurants and shops and the weekly market, held in the town's central square, adds an additional level of tradition and charm to the town.

The town's port was once an important trading hub for spices and ivory. A popular visitor attraction in the town is the Chateau Museum. The 15th century limestone and flint fortress was constructed on the town's west cliffs and today contains collections related to maritime, ivories sculptured by craftsmen from the town since the 16th century, paintings by Boudin, Lebourg and Pissaro.

For visitors who would rather spend their time outdoors there is an 18 hole golf course nearby and also tennis courts and a range of water sports.

The port, with its marina and fishing port, is in the very heart of the town. Trawlers and fishing boats provide a colourful spectacle which still attracts numerous painters.
