France is a wonderful country steeped in culture and history, and makes for a wonderful holiday destination. However, its close proximity to England makes it the perfect place for a day trip or long weekend too! Whatever your reason for travelling, this simple guide makes it easy to travel from the UK to France using a ferry.
What you'll need: 
Computer and Internet connection OR a telephone.
Credit or debit card.
Car (optional).
1: 
First, you need to decide which route to take. There are 4 main British ports which offer ferry crossings to French destinations: Plymouth, Poole, Portsmouth, Dover. Other ports, such as Newhaven, offer less frequent crossings. The main England-France ferry routes can be found at EuroDrive.

Once you have chosen your route, you must choose a ferry operator to travel with. The main ferry operators for England-France routes are P&O, SeaFrance, and Brittany Ferries. Please be aware that not all operators will cover all routes.
3: 
Decide how many passengers are travelling, and if you are going by foot, car, or other vehicle.
4: 
Book your chosen route with your selected ferry operator. You may do this online, or by phone, but the best deals are often found online.

Travel to your chosen departure port, check-in, and have a safe trip!

If travelling by ferry isn't for you, try the Channel Tunnel!
