Ideally situated an equal distance from London, Paris and Brussels it comes as no surprise that Dunkerque (known to the English as Dunkirk) is one of France's busiest and most vibrant port towns.

With up to 12 arrivals a day from Dover, travelsupermarket.com provides flexibility in choosing your ferry crossing from the UK. The most easterly of all the French ports, Dunkerque is a great landing point for anyone looking for the easiest route to Central and Northern Europe, and travelsupermarket.com's ferry comparison tool allows you to secure the cheapest prices between Dover and Dunkerque as well as competing routes across the channel.

Dunkerque lies just 10km from the Belgian border and is strongly influenced by the nearby Flemish culture. Dunkerque is famous for its great expanses of sand dunes, and the neighbouring golden beaches, as well as the Flemish twist on the traditional French architecture and cuisine of the town. For those not staying in the town, Dunkerque is well connected to nearby Calais as well as Paris and Lille to the south and Bruges and Ghent to the east.
