Poole Ferry Port


Poole Ferry Terminal has a central position on the South Coast and is easily reached from London, the Midlands and the West Country.

Convenient road and rail links ensure all passengers can enjoy a hassle free journey to the ferry terminal.

Brittany Ferries operates a daily departure from Poole to the port of Cherbourg in Normandy. The crossing from Poole to Cherbourg takes just 4.5 hours and is the fastest Channel crossing on a cruise ferry that we offer.

Poole has a stunning natural harbour, the world's second largest after Sydney, and is famed for its magnificent beaches. Its three miles of golden sands from Sandbanks to Canford Cliffs are some of the finest in Britain.

If you're staying for a while in Dorser then why not visit the New Forest, just a short drive away.

With shaded paths meandering through ancient woodland, picturesque villages dotted amongst the landscape, The New Forest is one of the UK's best loved outdoor treasures.

Visit the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu to see a huge array of vintage and rare vehicles dating back to the earliest days of motoring.

See here for accommodation in the New Forest.
