Leading French holiday ferry company, Brittany Ferries, has announced that it will commence services between Portsmouth and Le Havre from 17th May to run throughout the summer until 16th September. Operating four days a week, from Thursday to Sunday, using their high-speed vessel, the crossing will take just 3 hours 45 minutes and will provide the ideal way to get to France quickly.
Mike Bevens, Group Passenger Commercial Director, comments: “Bookings have bounced back this year and we saw an opportunity to increase our range of destinations and therefore provide even greater choice for our customers, particularly those heading for eastern France, Paris and the Alps. This new route brings the total number provided by Brittany Ferries between the UK and France to six – more than any other ferry company.”
“The schedule is ideal for those who want to minimise their travelling time because, with an 07.00 departure from Portsmouth and an arrival time of 11.45, you can be in Normandy for lunch and in (for example) La Rochelle unpacked and in time for pre-dinner drinks! Portsmouth is also an extraordinarily accessible port from which to depart, with a motorway taking you right to the port’s entrance. And, with dual carriageway all the way from London SW15, the drive to Portsmouth via the Hindhead Tunnel takes less than 90 minutes.”
