Belgium's just a short drive from the ferry port.

Travel with DFDS Seaways from Newcastle and drive from our port in IJmuiden (Holland) where you can reach many of Belgium's top cities including Bruges, Antwerp and Brussels all in under 3 hours.

It could take you almost that JUST to get to another ferry port in the UK when you travel from Newcastle, and you will still need to drive your car from their ports in mainland Europe to your final destintation in Belgium.

This means travelling on our ferry to Belgium can save you fuel, money and time.
