Four routes to Europe

No matter where you're from in the UK, there's a DFDS route for you. For anyone travelling from Scotland, Ireland or the north of England, travel on our overnight crossings to Amsterdam from Newcastle. We also offer short breaks to Amsterdam. Our Dover-Dunkirk and Calais crossings are ideal for those visiting to France, Belgium and beyond. Hop on our Newhaven-Dieppe crossing if you are looking for convenient access to the heart of Normandy, with easy routes to Brittany, and just 2½ hours from the chic capital of Paris.

Our ship's onboard facilities include bars, restaurants, shops, children's soft play and more, so your journey flies by. 

Our routes​​

Gateway to the continent

Ferry crossings are a comfortable and convenient way to reach Europe. Our routes offer the option to travel with your car, caravan, motorhome or motorcycle, with our Newcastle and Newhaven crossings also giving you the option to travel on foot. There are no luggage restrictions, either, so you can take everything you may need, and don't have to worry about not having enough space for souvenirs.

Once you arrive, the continent is at your fingertips. Explore Gallic gastronomy and culture, venture to Belgium for quaint medieval towns and delicious food, explore Holland's beaches, campsites and cities or discover Germany's untouched forests and spectacular architecture. A short break to Amsterdam is the perfect city escape, too, with 2-5 night options available.
