"Our driving holiday in France was an enjoyable experience. We didn’t realise how easy it would be. We will definitely do it again." Mr & Mrs Parnell, Kent
Operation Dynamo and the famous Dunkirk evacuation have become synonymous with the French city, and are widely regarded as one of the UK’s proudest military moments, showcasing a never-say-die attitude which saved thousands of lives and helped turn the tide of the war.
To commemorate Operation Dynamo, there are a number of events taking place throughout May, and a museum dedicated to the event set to open in September. You can also pay a visit to the Dunkirk War Museum, open every day. The Dunkirk Cemetery and Memorial is also just outside of the city, and commemorates soldiers who served in the First and Second World Wars, from France and the UK.
Our route from Dover to Dunkirk provides an easy access to the continent and up to 24 daily sailings between the UK and France.
With sailings day and night, you’re sure to find one which suits your schedule. What’s more, each sailing is quick, taking just 2 hours, and there are no luggage restrictions on any of our ferry crossings!
Gateway to Europe
Our port in Dunkirk is also conveniently located should you decide to travel further afield. With excellent motorway connections to major holiday destinations in France, Holland, Belgium and Germany, you can get straight back on the road after your short ferry crossing and carry on to your destination. Ferry crossings with a car are a convenient way to explore the continent at your own pace – and great value too.
