There are channel ferry ports in England at Poole, Southampton, Portsmouth and Dover and you can choose your French destination port of either St Malo, Cherbourg, Roscoff, Caen, Le Harve or Calais. The choice of ferry route depends
on where you live and how you wish to undertake it.
Many of our clients prefer to take the trip the leisurely way by leaving a day early and booking a hotel room for the night
on route. Some prefer the direct approach and undertake the trip in one go, Dover/Calais being the shortest and least expensive crossing. Others prefer a night crossing taking a cabin on board the ferry and making the most of the ships facilities. From Calais, the drive takes around 7 hours at the speed limits and with a clear run through Paris. The toll roads cost around 47 euros for the whole journey. Whilst the drive is long, it is stress-
