French Connections

Situated a few kilometres to the east of Brighton, Newhaven is one of the closest ports to London with a ferry link to France and is easily accessible from many parts of southern England. As one of the smaller cross channel ports it can therefore be a good option for a fast and easy crossing.

The LD Lines ferry terminal at Newhaven has a range of facilities including a café that is open 7 days a week as well as showers and toilet facilities.

Newhaven is just 9 miles away from Brighton where there is lots to see and do such as boutique shopping in the lanes and enjoying a traditional seaside experience.
