Dover to Calais and Dunkirk

Dover to calais & dunkirk

The DFDS Seaways ferry to France from Dover is easy. Just a short hop across the Channel and you’ll be in France in less than 2 hours. Both Dunkirk and Calais ports have fast, easy access to France’s superb motorway network, and while Calais is ideal for central and southern France, Dunkirk offers savings on time and miles if you’re heading for Holland, Belgium, Germany or eastern Europe.

You can return to the UK from either port (no matter which you sailed out from) and it’s this unique flexibility - coupled with short Channel crossing times and up to 22 sailings daily in both directions – that makes us your first choice for ferries to France from Dover.

​​Dunkirk and Calais are both located in the North of France and provide fantastic access to France​, Belgium and Holland. Both ferry ports are separated by a 20 minute drive, meaning you now have more flexibility in when and where you travel to than ever before! ​Newhaven is the closest British port to London and a short distance from the famous seaside resort of Brighton. Dieppe is also ideally situated in Upper Normandy with fast connections to Paris and all parts of Northern France.​​
