Gateway to the UK

Gateway to the UK

Arriving in Newhaven puts you in the heart of southern England, with stunning countryside and historic towns within easy reach. There are seaside towns such as Brighton, Eastbourne and Hastings with historic piers and local attractions, while further inland you have the gorgeous High Weald, and the South Downs National Park. Newhaven is also the closest port to London, giving you easy access to this exciting city and all its attractions. You can also head north and discover beautiful areas such as the Lake District or the rugged Scottish countryside.



Our port in Dieppe is ideally situated for travelling to the UK from France,​ with easy access from Paris (2 hour's drive away) and fast motorway links from other major cities such as Rouen, Amiens and Caen, or elsewhere in Normandy and Brittany. The ships are comfortable and well-equipped, so the short 4 hour crossing is sure to fly by.


Onboard Experience

We have an onboard cafe bar which serves a wide range of hot and cold drinks and snacks, so you can relax while you sail. Head out on deck and take in the fresh sea air as you cruise across the Channel, meanwhile you can keep the little ones busy in the play area. We also have a self-service restaurant onboard, so you can sit down to a delicious meal as you cross, whether you choose the day or night-time crossing. The onboard bar offers stunning sea views with floor to ceiling windows, while our onboard shop stocks a range of souvenirs, travel essentials, confectionery and snacks.
