Welcome to the UK’s busiest international Ferry Port

Cross channel crossings

The Gateway to Europe.

Ferry crossings are on offer 24 hours a day, 364 days a year, with a departure on average every 30 minutes.

There are three ferry operators running ships from Dover; P&O Ferries, DFDS, and Irish Ferries. P&O and Irish Ferries operate ferries from Dover to Calais, while DFDS offers a service to both Calais and Dunkerque.

Calais and Dunkerque are convenient destinations, providing quick and efficient links into the rest of France and Belgium. Calais offers quick access via road or rail into Paris, while Dunkerque is less than an hour’s drive from Bruges in Belgium.
