Day trips and short breaks Autumn 2015

26 October 2015

A lovely autumn so far this year so why not take advantage of the clement weather and take a little ferry trip before the winter sets in? A long weekend, even a day trip can do us the world of good and offset the winter blues. So take the pain out of choosing your ferry crossing and book with can quote and book your ferry trip with a choice of over 1,600 routes and over 150 operators; AFerry takes the pain out of the search! Whether foot passengers, minivan or motorcycle, bicycle or car, we can advise or suggest popular and affordable options, routes and destinations.  
Dover to Calais - gateway to northern France, a popular haunt for those wanting to experience either the war graves of the Nord Pas de Calais or Picardy, the excellent Christmas shopping of the city of Lille, or travel further south towards Paris and a long weekend maybe in the City of Light.  
Dover to Dunkirk - the easy access route to the picturesque town of Bruges, perennially popular for visitors of all ages, as is the coastal town of Ostend renowned for its stunning beaches and seaside atmosphere. A day trip is easy and you'll feel as if you have had a longer break. 
Portsmouth to St Malo - always a draw, the coast of Brittany, the megaliths, the gauffres, and the more than famous Mont St.Michel with recently updated and improved access to make it even more delightful. A short break is all you need to recharge the batteries before Christmas.  
Newhaven to Dieppe - next to Le Tréport (recently seen in Witnesses on the TV) Dieppe is also one of the best ways into Normandy, the gardens, the cider, the cheese and, of course, marvellous Giverny which should not be missed.  
Holyhead to Dublin - the delights of County Wicklow, the city of Dublin - home of Guinness or a golf weekend for friends looking for some of the best courses in Europe.  
Liverpool to Belfast - Belfast is fun for clubbers and night owls, but maybe a sightseeing trip to the Giant's Causeway is more up your street!  
Portsmouth to Channel Islands - with Continental flavour, mild climate and easy going tranquillity, the Channel Islands are always a favourite for those looking for a quieter pace of life for a few days.  
Portsmouth to Fishbourne - the Osbourne House for the history buffs or Cowes for the sailors or even a day trip over to Ryde . it is quick and easy to get to.and they speak the same language!
