Gateway to the UK

When you step off the ferry in Dover you’ll find easy access to a huge array of exciting destinations across England and the rest of the UK. You’re immediately met with history and beauty with Dover Castle and the White Cliffs of Dover just nearby. Heading further into Kent you’ll find the famous Canterbury Cathedral and the seaside towns of Margate, Ramsgate, and Whitstable. Fast motorway links will also take you to London and the M25, giving you easy access to the rest of the UK.



Our port in Dunkirk is the ideal starting point for a trip to the UK, with 24 crossings each day in each direction. Dunkirk’s location, in the north-east of France,​ makes it easily accessible from Germany, Holland, Belgium and further afield, such as eastern Europe or Scandinavia. Each crossing takes just 2 hours, so you can get straight back on the road and continue to your destination, perhaps after grabbing a bite to eat or a coffee.
