Poole to Cherbourg ferry crossing
Whether you’re thinking of an early autumn break or planning ahead for next year, if you live within easy striking distance of Poole and fancy hopping across the channel to France or a few days, the Poole to Cherbourg ferry crossing is a great option. Poole is easily accessible by car and Cherbourg is one of the best-connected ferry ports in France. Brittany Ferries offer the fastest available crossing to this port via their high speed ferry service from Poole.
While the Dover Calais route is the shortest and best ‘trodden’ way to get to France by ferry, if you’re planning on visiting Normandy, Brittany or west France in general, this route will save you valuable driving time yet only takes four and a half hours or two and a half hours with the high speed service. There are also overnight services with cabins available if you want to arrive refreshed.
