High-speed ferry to France

Our convenient morning sailings aboard Normandie Express mean you'll be in Normandy at lunchtime, allowing plenty of time to explore Cherbourg and its surrounding coastline or push on to your destination further south. There's also a choice of additional sailings over the weekend or you can mix and match our high speed service with any of our cruise sailings to make your perfect itinerary.


With just a few hours on board, you can enjoy a coffee (or something stronger) and a bite to eat at the bars or café. Why not take the opportunity to stock up on a few things in our small onboard boutique too?



No need to drive the long way round when Portsmouth is the closest ferry port to London. With direct access from the motorway, the port is easily reached from the Midlands and South England.

Arrive in the historic naval city of Cherbourg on the western edge of the D-Day sites. A fantastic destination in it's own right and a gateway to the beautiful Cotentin Peninsula and beyond.
