How to Get to Dunkirk
Trains and Ferries
There is only one operator that offers a direct route from Dover to Dunkirk and this service is offered by Norfolkline Ferries.
PS Don’t forget your passport.
Ferry is one of the easiest and cheapest ways to get to Calais, and the services offered by ferry companies have improved massively in recent years. More competition has encouraged better prices, and there is now a great choice of places to catch the ferry from. Ferries are far less hassle than planes, saving you time and aggravation, as well as money. If you need your car, the benefits are huge, taking your own car on a ferry saves you having to sort out transport when you arrive in France, it also enables you to carry a lot of luggage to and from France!
