    Just a few minutes from Dunkirk Port the Aire at Gravelines is far more pleasant, and there is a great Friterie in the Square.:Smile:

    We use the ticket office car park. Handy especially if it's a late crossing. Make sure you are in the left hand lane when leaving the port.

    We have used the ticket office car park for the past 4 years with no problem, experience has taught us to park away from the office area, and near the internal fence, that area is the least noisy during the night.
    There are a couple of showers in the Toilets, a bit rustic but hot water.
    Unfortunately the recent changes in the pricing structure by DFDS have made us go elsewhere (myferrylink),
    however considering whats going on at Calais, we may still use the Dunkirk car park if we need to overnight. ;)
