Our ferry crossings from the UK to France​ may be short, but there’s plenty to do onboard to keep your group happy. All our ferries are equipped with onboard restaurants where you can grab a quick bite to eat, or a full meal if you prefer, bars where you can settle down with a drink, plus a shop selling gifts, souvenirs, travel essentials and more.

Coach drivers


We know how important it is to keep coach drivers rested and refreshed as they drive from A to B, that’s why we try to make our crossings as relaxing and enjoyable as possible for drivers. All commercial drivers can enjoy a free meal in the Road Kings restaurant, as well as making the most of shower and washing facilities, hot and cold drinks and more.
