Brittany ferries concentrates its services on the western English channel, providing crossings to Brittany, Normandy and Northern Spain. They pride themselves on giving their customers a relaxing introduction to a holiday in France, with fine French cuisine on the menu and a choice of interesting and picturesque destination ports for those on short breaks.


Brittany ferries operates on the following routes:

Portsmouth to Caen Leaving from a port closer to London than Dover, this overnight crossing takes you to the historic Norman city of Caen with great transport links to Paris, Brittany and the south.

Portsmouth to St.Malo a slightly longer crossing taking you further west into Brittany to the walled seaport of St.Malo, a beautiful destination in itself but also with good road access for onward travel.

Portsmouth to Cherbourg the quickest crossing into Normandy at just four hours 30 minutes.

Poole to Cherbourg again a quicker crossing, here with the option of Brittany ferries' two fastcraft, taking the journey time down to two hours 15 minutes. Better access from Wales and the west country to this south coast port.

Plymouth to Roscoff Plymouth's motorway access to the M5 make this a good choice for holidaymakers from the north and west of the U.K. The six hour overnight crossing takes you to the fishing port of Roscoff deep in Brittany.

Plymouth to Santander Travel in style to the north of Spain on Brittany ferries' newest ship, and avoid the long drive through France. This 18 hour overnight crossing may be holiday enough for some with the latest in onboard entertainment, and Santander is perfect for a short break or as the starting point for a holiday in Spain or Portugal.

Cork to Roscoff Irish tourists will find this 11 hour crossing the shortest and quickest surface route to mainland Europe, cutting out the U.K. on the way to many French destinations and beyond.

All the ferries share similar standards of accommodation, dining and entertainment although their flagship the Pont Aven, servicing the Plymouth to Santander route is the most up to date with the widest choice of entertainments including cinemas and a swimming pool. All services accommodate foot passengers as well as those with cars, caravans and motorcycles. For longer crossings cabin accommodation is recommended but not necessary, but trying to sleep in the public spaces can be a dispiriting experience. To travel in the most luxurious fashion, book one of Brittany ferries' Commodore Class cabins, with a panoramic sea view, flat screen tv, en suite bathroom and complimentary breakfast. Disabled passengers are welcomed by Brittany ferries, and are asked to make their booking by phone (08703 665 333) if any special assistance is required.
