Brittany Ferries from the ports of St Malo and Caen - allow 6 hours driving time.
Northern Ports of Calais - 10 hours driving time
I encourage guests to use the routes offered by Brittany Ferries as although the cheaper ferry rates offered by the northern ports may seem attractive, you will need to consider the additional costings of fuel, tolls and perhaps an overnight stop.
