Booking your crossing and taking your ferry

Newhaven port, near Brighton, is a very convenient location as it is very close to London and easily reachable. When you book, your booking confirmation will have the address of the port.

When should I arrive and check in?

Check in starts one and half hours before your sailing. If you arrive less than 45 minutes before your sailing, you may not be allowed entry. In these circumstances, you may be able to travel on another sailing and there may be a charge in addition to a potential difference in fare.

You'll just need your booking reference and passport or other valid travel ID to check in. You won't have to print off a ticket before you board.

On board your ferry to Dieppe

There are three daily sailings in both directions from 1 May to 30 September and two daily sailings at other times of the year. The crossing is only four hours but there are wealth of facilities and features on board to keep you entertained during your crossing.

What advantage of this route over others is that all passengers automatically have access to reclining lounge seats during the crossing for no extra charge. Of course, a variety of cabins are also available and you can see details of these when you make your booking.

Onboard facilities include a restaurant, a shop, and a bar with floor to ceiling windows offering stunning views across the ocean. If travelling with kids, you'll find a play area to keep them entertained during the crossing.

    Rough crossing
    • We returned to Newhaven on the 6.00 ferry from Dieppe on Sunday 29th September. The sea conditions were very rough and while the staff on board were obviously helping passengers the announcements were not very informative. I think they could have been more specific to that crossing. At one stage there was a loud bang, which sounded like we had hit something, but there was no explanation. It was somewhat ironic to hear an announcement towards the end of the journey hoping we had had an enjoyable trip!

    Efficient and reliable service
    • Check in and out either went without delay. Comfortable seating and facilities. This crossing is good value for money and will now be our regular route.

    Relaxing and efficient
    • Our journey with DFDS was easy from booking our trip to coming home. The cost is reasonable and we were comfortable in our cabin. The hot drinks and snack cost was high but we should have bought our own. A good trip in all.

    Good apart from pet facilities
    • It is a good option travelling with DFDS (been travelling with them a few times) but usually I prefer the Shuttle basically because of the lack of pet facilities. Would be nice to have an area designed to stay with your pet and-or cages where you can visit them. Leaving the dog in the car for 4h is not a big deal but I would rather been able to check them.

    September hols
    • Overall all went very well apart from coming off the ferry and going through the customs which took well over an hour after arriving.
