Gateway to the UK

Arriving in Dover, you have a huge selection of exciting destinations across England to choose from. As soon as you step off the ferry you have history and beauty on your doorstep, with Dover Castle and the nearby White Cliffs of Dover. Exploring Kent further you’ll find the famous Canterbury Cathedral and the seaside towns of Margate and Ramsgate. The M20 motorway from Dover links you directly to the M25 and London, giving you access to East Anglia, Somerset and the south west, and many more exciting destinations, such as the north of England, Wales and Scotland.



Our port in Calais is the perfect place to begin a trip to the UK, with easy motorway links to northern France as well as the rest of the country and Belgium too. With a crossing time of just 90 minutes, it’s our shortest crossing so is ideal if you wanted to get straight back onto the road and continue to your destination. The route is also served by our 2 new ships, the CÔTE DES FLANDRES and CÔTE DES DUNES.
