Cherbourg to Poole Ferry

Connecting the city of Cherbourg on the coast of France with the town of Poole on the coast of England, this ferry route provides a critical link between these two quiet towns. From the city of Cherbourg, known as one of the oldest port cities in France, having a history that can be dated back to the Vikings, and is still one of the most instrumental cities in France, thanks to its rich history and excellent location on the coast, to the town of Poole, located close to many other port cities on the coast, but still famous in its own right, thanks to its many sandy beaches that are considered some of the best in the UK, as well as its famous pottery, which is sold in many shops across the town.

Cherbourg Poole Ferry reviews

  • "Harbouring views"

    It was the first time I have had the pleasure to arrive in Poole by sea and a thoroughly enjoyable experience it was. Many passengers including myself were up on deck blessed by the sun giving us a warm welcome as the vessel navigated it’s way carefully into dock. The area is extremely interesting as I have since found out some of it’s history and definitely worthy of further exploration. Besides this Brittany Ferries continues to give it’s usual service with friendly staff running a clean ship where you can relax and enjoy the crossing. My only real complaint is that fares to tend to be on the high side which is a shame because otherwise I would sail the route more often.

  • "A surprisingly pleasant experience"

    The whole ship was spotlessly clean. Food was plentiful without too many queues. Announcements were clear. Seats were not particularly comfortable for a long crossing and paying an extra £15 for a more.comfortablenone seems rather money grabbing. But staff were charming and helpful and we were impressed by the efficiency and cleanliness.

  • "Return trip from France"

    It was so easy to book via direct ferries being able to choose the right carrier at the right time at a great price. We had used Brittany Ferries before on a different route and were not disappointed on the Cherbourg / Poole route.

  • "Fairly straightforward crossing "

    First time we'd done this crossing, having previously done Plymouth to Roscoff mostly. It is smaller than the Plymouth one. There is a buffet which is a scaled down version of the Plymouth one. The crossing was fine, I was asleep during most of it. The cabin was comfortable.
