French Connections

If you are travelling from Dover to France but you want to cut some driving time off of your journey then then getting the ferry into Dunkerque (Dunkirk) could be the answer as Dunkerque is closer to many northern European cities than Calais and has links to the A16 and A25 motorways.

Ferries from Dover to Dunkerque are run by DFDS (Formerly Norfolkline Ferries.). The ferries leave roughly every two hours and the journey takes around two hours. They offer a wider range of on board facilities to make your journey comfortable and convenient such as shopping, restaurants and play areas for the children.

Visit DFDS Seaways via the link below to view real time prices, availability and book ferries from Dover to Dunkerque, or see the bottom of the page for alternatives to Dover to Dunkerque ferries.
