Gateway to Europe
Our Newhaven-Dieppe route provides a convenient gateway to Normandy, Brittany, central and western France and beyond. It is also the closest port to Paris.
Choose to travel with your car, caravan, motorhome, motorcycle, and bicycle or even on foot and unlike flying there’s no need to worry about baggage restrictions.
Our ferries to Dieppe from the UK depart 2 or 3 times a day (depending on the time of year) and take just 4 hours to reach their destination. View the Newhaven-Dieppe sailing schedule .
With onboard facilities including a restaurant, a shop, and a bar with floor to ceiling windows and stunning sea views, your holiday will start the moment you board our Newhaven ferry. Kids will love being out on deck, and there is also a play area to keep them entertained.
When you book your ferry to Dieppe, you automatically have access to reclining lounge seats during the crossing so you can rest, relax and sleep, but if you prefer you can book your own private cabin for a small extra fee. Each cabin has en suite shower and toilet facilities and two or four comfortable beds, so you can relax and sleep as you sail.
La belle France
It should come as no surprise that France is the world’s most popular holiday destination. From famous cities such as Paris, Rouen and Amiens, to the dramatic cliffs and beautiful beaches of France’s northern coastline, not to mention its fantastic artistic heritage, France has everything a tourist could ask for.
Northern France is an ideal destination for lovers of the great outdoors, with walking, sailing, fishing, cycling, kayaking, and golfing all available, set in France’s beautiful forests, valleys and meadows.
If food and drink are more your thing, then be sure to follow Normandy’s celebrated Cheese and Cider Route, stocking up on camembert, Pont L’Évênque, Calvados, and cider along the way. For the young (and the young at heart) you could also head a little further south to the most magical theme park in Europe: Disneyland Paris. Our port in Dieppe is our closest port to Paris, making it the ideal starting point for your journey.
Passengers are welcome to bring their pets onboard the ferry to Dieppe from the UK, subject to our Pet Travel Regulations, so the whole family can enjoy a holiday together. More information on pet travel
