Hook of Holland Harwich Ferry reviews

  • "great overnight sailing"

    we checked in at 19:30 for a 22:00 sailing. Everything was smooth to get onto the ship. Staff was helpful in securing us a great cabin for a family of 5. Ship was clean and comfortable and on time. (We've had time delays with Irish Ferries in the past, not so with Stena) Would sail again (Hook of Holland to Harwick overnight)

Hook of Holland Guide

The Hook of Holland, sometimes called De Hoek, is a town located in the west of The Netherlands and a popular ferry gateway to Harwich, England, a route currently operated by Stena Line. The town's name is a reference to its location in the south west corner of Holland, at the mouth of the Nieuwe Waterweg ship canal that eventually flows to the North Sea.

The Hook of Holland ferry terminal has a few passenger facilities including a convenience store, a cafe and bar. The primary ferry route, taking you to Harwich, is run by world class ships boasting shops, cafes, foreign exchange services and a casino on board.

A popular visitor attraction in the town is the Coastal Defence Museum at Fort aan den Hoek Van Holland, which was built in the late 19th century to defend the newly excavated Nieuwe Waterweg against attack from the sea.
