It is 1.5 mile from the center of Dover. Take a little day trip with our Day Trip Explorers from 35* and take the ferries to Calais to spend a whole day exploring the beautiful countryside with your loved ones and mates. Located in the north of France, Calais and the Hauts-de-France area are only 90 minutes away by boat from Dover, which means that you can easily make your day trip, and although it is often regarded as the gate to France, this area has a great deal to do.
A day trip to the Hauts-de-France offers a wide range of activities for those who like to see the arts, taste different dishes and visit historic places, but also the possibility to admire breathtaking landscapes such as woods, farmlands, beaches and cretaceous rocks. A day trip to France would be ideal for you, as there are many sights to discover.
Visits include the famed Dunkirk Strand, just 40 minutes by car from Calais, the La Coupole World War 2 shelter, constructed by Nazi Germany to launch missiles in the south of England, and the caves of Les Boves, where 24,000 UK forces were hidden during the First World War. A little more than an hours from Calais is Lille, a lovely city with paved alleys dotted with pubs and cafés and numerous shops.
It also offers an amazing night life that might be of interest if you want to prolong your day trip to France. You will not only have a great holiday when you come to France, but your trip will also be great. In order to hop aboard a P&O boat and go on an entertaining day trip to France, just choose your preferred date in the fare finder and you can plan what you want to do!
