About Dover

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.

About Dunkirk

Dunkirk Ferry Port is situated across the Channel from Dover on the coast of northern France. The Port of Dunkirk is France's third largest port, because it is conveniently located between London, Brussels and Paris. Dunkirk allows passengers to quickly and efficiently embark, or disembark at the port, making it more convenient than the nearby port of Calais (45km away), which has far more sailings per day.

Dunkirk is a city that has a lot to offer, from shops and great traditional restaurants, to sandy beaches and a brand new golf course.

From Dunkirk port, you can easily reach the two covered shopping malls in the city centre, with all major brands and free car parking facilities available.

Dunkirk has 15 km of beautiful sandy beaches, known as the "Dunes de Flandre", making it an ideal holiday destination for families and surfers.

In Dunkirk you can taste original Flemish food as well as fantastic fresh local seafood. Dunkirk is also well known for its new 27-hole golf course, which is located just 15km from the port.

    Happy crossing
    • Had a queue at booking in going and felt duty free was a bit small but that was offset by good value Tea and coffee expensive and low quality but overall thought we had a good value for money crossing both ways
