Ferry Dieppe – Newhaven

The ferry from Newhaven to Dieppe is a good route for anyone travelling from the south of England to France. Newhaven is only 20 minutes by car from the town of Brighton. London and Cardiff are also very close by. It is a popular route from the UK to France, next to alternatives like Dover to Calais & Portsmouth Le Havre. It is also a great option if you travel to Paris by ferry.

Currently, this route is only sailed by the shipping company DFDS. The ferry leaves about three times a day, taking about 4 hours. You could also choose to sail at night, then on the road/boat for an hour longer, but then you can relax and arrive in England early in the morning.

This route is an excellent alternative to ensure border controls are run effectively (fast) without severe delay, as this is the only large ferry leaving Dieppe and Newhaven.

It's a good alternative to avoid the hassle of border controls at Calais-Dover.

    I had a smooth crossing without any problems. It was a bit stormy on the water in my case, but that’s force majeure for the ferry operator.

    + PROS: Make the crossing by car Dogs allowed Cheap (85 euros)
    - CONS: Takes 4 hours (not really a huge con)
