Dover is the most popular port in England, and the gateway to France for many British tourists. Dover faces the narrowest part of the channel, and on a clear day you can see France from the ferry port. You can book ferries from Dover to Calais or Dunkirk with AFerry. With so many reasons to travel by ferry it is no surprise that Dover ferry routes are some of the most popular ways of travelling to or from the UK.
As the shortest channel crossing between England and France, Dover has been a popular port for people who wish to explore mainland Europe. The iconic chalk cliffs have become known as the White cliffs of Dover, and can be seen for miles across the channel. Dover prides itself in its transport services and tourism, and has 3 museums; the main Dover Museum, the Dover Transport Museum and the Roman Painted House.
Tax is lower on cigarettes and alcohol in Calais, which means mean English tourists flock there for the 'booze cruises'. There are large warehouses around the town in which you can take advantage of these cheap prices, most famously Eurocity.
Calais ferry port is located across the Channel from Dover on the coast of northern France, it is situated on the most frequented shipping lanes in the world and is the closest French town to the United Kingdom. Calais ferry port is conveniently situated to allow easy access to the port itself but also to shops and restaurants in the surrounding area by being directly linked to the French motorway system. Ferries from Calais ferry port can be booked easily through AFerry.

09 Jan 2020Good overall
Nice and easy, although it was a less busy time on Monday night. What I did like is that DFDS did not charge us for changing the return date as we were broken down on the original return date. That said, the lady whom i spoke with on the phone to change my tickets did not tell me about it even though I told her that we were broken down. The gentleman on the check-in point did and erased the charge.

I would love to see a ferry offer quality vegan meal. I cringe when I see the menu. A bit of quality choice with food would be good..
