Ferries to England

The largest and most populous constituent country of the United Kingdom, England occupies most of the southern two-thirds of the island of Great Britain.

Until recently England was generally thought of as a gentle, fabled land freeze-framed sometime in the ‘30s, home of the post office, country pub and vicarage. It's now better known for vibrant cities with great nightlife and attractions, contrasted with green and pleasant countryside.

With intriguing cities, beautiful countryside, England has something for all tastes. From the essential glories of London, Stratford, Gloucester and York, to the quirky delights of Newcastle, Liverpool and Manchester, England’s cities are lively, buzzing places, where a love of nostalgia strains against a spirit of inventiveness.

Enjoy the unrivalled beauty of the Cotswolds and the Dales, but travel the byways of Northumberland, and church-laden Lincolnshire too. With time to spare, escape the tourist trails and wander over peaceful countryside, savour ‘real’ ale at a country pub, visit a traditional town market, or sample England’s ‘new-wave’ wines and a cosmopolitan cuisine that rivals any in the world.

England today is welcoming, friendly, fascinating and fun, where pomp and circumstance balance the often bizarre idiosyncrasies of its people, and a sense of humor is the passport to certain acceptance.

England reviews

  • "P and O Irish sea"

    Nothing but good things to say about this service. Superb care and attention from port staff at both Dublin and Liverpool. These guys couldn't have been more helpfull even with a less than standard vehicle and loaded trailer combination. Crossing time allows for a good rest break before travelling on again, and the two meals set you up for the journey ahead. Relatively straight forward booking procedure online, either direct with P and O, or by Direct Ferries brokerage. Competetively priced but check all times for best value. Nice to be treated like a passenger, rather than a commodity!!
