Channel ferry ports linking England and France
If you're planning to travel as a foot passenger or take your car, motorcycle, van or motorhome to France, you have the choice of several ferry ports on either side of the English Channel, plus the option of the channel tunnel.
Which ferry route you choose will depend on a number of factors. The shorter crossings tend to be the quickest and least expensive – but when making travel plans, don't forget to factor in those easily overlooked extra costs such as fuel, food and drink and motorway tolls.
Channel ports aren't the only options if you're travelling by ferry to France. Consider the routes to Santander and Bilbao in northern Spain if your destination is south east France, and if your starting point is in Scotland or north east England, the routes between Rosyth or Newcastle and Zeebrugge, in Belgium, may be convenient.
