Taking a short trip over to France by ferry can be a great way to travel and a quick and scenic way to get on to the continent. With France laying just 25 miles from Dover, you can enjoy a short ferry trip while enjoying all the facilities of the ferry.
However, when many people think about getting a ferry to France they think of arriving in Calais. If this is something you have done many times before then you may want to change it up a bit and instead use Dover Dunkirk Ferries that will take you through to the infamous port of Dunkirk.
Dunkirk has plenty of shopping opportunities, some lovely bars, alfresco coffee shops and some top quality restaurants as well as parks, historic attractions and much, much more.
While on the ferry you can enjoy quality dining, have a drink at the bar or enjoy some of the many leisure facilities on board, all of which will make your travel part of your trip, meaning that the second you step onboard your break has already begun. Alternatively, you can simply go up on deck, sit back and enjoy the sea breeze and watch France slowly come into view as you approach.
You can travel over as foot passengers, or pay just a little bit more and take a car with up to 5 passengers, meaning there’s plenty of room for the kids within one price and you then have the freedom and opportunity to explore much more of France once you get there. Alternatively, you may choose to use this as a starting point and from there on drive down through to Spain or indeed anywhere else in Europe that takes your fancy for a road trip!
