Ferries have provided regular trips to/from the ports of Calais and Dover since the start of the 19th century and the packet boat era. 

Calais – Dover Crossing

Two car ferry companies provide the crossing: P&O Ferries and DFDS Seaways. Ferries transport vehicles and passengers on the 90 minute trip day and night.

The departure point on the French coast is the Calais car ferry terminal to the north of the city. The terminal is linked to the motorway network (A16 and A26) and near the city centre (5 minutes by car). Departures on the English coast are from Dover via the main roads in the South of England and London
