    Driving in France

    by sue_stone Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In June/July 2006 we had a 9 day driving holiday in France. We caught a car ferry from Dover to Calais, drove down through Normandy, popped into Brittany and then caught the ferry back to Dover from Boulogne-sur-Mer.

    We chose to take our own car over, as the cost of the ferry and petrol was significantly cheaper than flying from London and hiring a car in France. I also feel a lot more comfortable travelling in our own car as opposed to a hire car.

    The only negative thing about driving our car in France is that it is a right hand drive car, and French cars are left hand drive, which means that tolls/tickets machines etc are on the wrong side of the car for the driver to operate…luckily I was able to assist in these duties from the passenger seat, but I do feel sorry for the solo traveller in these situations.

    Driving in France is great. The roads are good and the sign posting is excellent. You can hoon along on the wide tollways/freeways, or travel along pretty coastal roads, soaking up the atmosphere of the French countryside. Just remember which side of the road you have to drive on if you come over from the UK.

    Off the beaten track in France

    Seacat to Dieppe

    by amapola66 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    2006 - Update : This service is no longer available much to the people of Brighton's dismay - Hopefully it will return. You now need to catch a ferry (longer journey of 4 hours).

    The Seacat is the fastest route to Dieppe from Newhaven. It runs in the spring, summer and autumn and not in the winter.

    You can get some really cheap deals if you keep an eye out.

    Many local people get the early morning Seacat on a Saturday, do their shopping in Dieppe market, have some lunch and return on the 2.30 to Newhaven.

    Regular buses operate from the bus station locally and to other French towns and cities. The local bus service is run by Stradibus and if you are going to use the bus regularly, you can buy a book of tickets from the Café des Voyageurs (opposite the Tourist Office), reducing the cost of individual journeys by two thirds.

    Driving from Dieppe

    by dave123taylor Written Jan 2, 2012

    Getting in , out and around Dieppe is very easy by car.
    Dieppe is not a big town so the car is only needed if travelling out of Dieppe or maybe if going to one of the edge of town supermarkets for supplies. (Although supplies are plentiful in town)

    We Travelled along the coast to Fecamp' and back inland to Dieppe through the smaller villages)
    The longest trip we took was to Rouen and back. The roads were congestion free, well maintained and well sign posted. The trip to Rouen to just under an hour and was well worth it.

    Newhaven to Dieppe with LD Transmanche

    by dave123taylor Written Jan 2, 2012

    The LD Transmanche Ferry from Newhaven to Dieppe is a comfortable ferry.
    It has an bar, a shop and a Cafe'. Staffed by French crew the prices are not extortionate and the choice is reasonable. The interiors are clean and comfortable. There are some good priced wines in the shop (Compared to the UK). Coffee from the bar is nice.

    There are minimal facilities at both ports so if you have time to kill then do it before arriving at the port it's self.

    The Crossing takes around 4 hours.

    There is lots of free parking on the front but does get full at peak times.
    Get there early or allow time to drive round, there's also lots of paid parking around Dieppe.
