UK to Normandy channel crossing by ferry

Jump to last reply

Planning a trip for 2 adults in September; 2 days in London, 3 days in Normandy, then returning to the UK to spend the remaining time in the Southeast. I've spent a lot of time in England (family there), so I have that mostly covered. The only channel crossing I've done though was Dover to Calais back in the Hoverspeed days.

Can anyone who's done it recently recommend the best point of departure and arrive for the channel crossing? I've looked at Portsmouth to Cherbourg and Newhaven to Dieppe. We do plan on renting a car once we arrive in France.

In France we will be spending some time in Falaise, touring the Normandy beaches, and also visiting Mont-Saint-Michel.

Thanks in advance for any advice.
