Portsmouth Information

One of England's busiest and most important ports, Portsmouth ferry port is located on England's southern coastline and thanks to the local bus networks and the road system it is only a short journey from the city's centre. One of the UK's largest and busiest ports, Portsmouth has a host of facilities for passengers, including a café, bar, bureau de change, ATM and 516 space multi-storey car park.

Portsmouth is the only city in England to have been constructed on an island, and the city is also the historic home of the Royal Navy and has the world's oldest, still functioning dry dock. The city's dry docks attract many visitors, as they currently house three British battleships, the most famous of them, the H.M.S Victory. But Portsmouth's attractions do not stop with the dry docks and Naval Centre, its waterfront houses, the Spinnaker tower, a wide range of shops and boutiques as well as many restaurants and cafes for visitors to relax and unwind in.

Cherbourg Information

The port of Cherbourg is one of the most popular entry points into France from the UK. Cherbourg links to Brittany via the E03 and Caen and the Loire Valley via the E46 or the N132. On the N13 from Paris and Caen, follow signposts for Cherbourg Ferry Port.

Officially known as Cherbourg-Octeville, this scenic port-town is the gateway to Normandy. Despite being best-known simply as an arrival destination, once you get past the ferry port walls you'll find a charming location with much to discover. Cherbourg lies on the Cotentin Peninsula which is home to some spectacular coastline and plenty of safe, sandy beaches. Within the port is La Cite de la Mer, where you'll find the largest aquarium in Europe and a nuclear submarine.

The town houses many restaurants serving excellent cuisine, boutiques, 19th century gardens and many open air markets selling the freshest of foods. The countryside of the Val de Saire area, east of Cherbourg, and the Hague peninsula, to the west, also have much to offer.

    • We fancied a day out to France and Brittany Ferries offered great sailing times and a fast crossing. The whole experience is very well organised from the start and the onboard amenities are fantastic. The staff are really helpful and the free shuttle bus the other end just added to an amazing day out. Ferry Savers got us a great price and the ease of booking with them has got me planning another trip. Thank you Ferry Savers

    Efficient and enjoyable trip
    • Would take this route again as it is time saving . Rather pricey for a single traveller. Found shopping facilities limited.
