    Drifting back towards northern France over the next couple of weeks aiming to return via one of the three Normandy ports..Cherbourg, Caen or Le Harve. We haven't booked the ferry yet and asking if there are any "tricks of the trade" or so to speak such as booking the night before..is that cheaper?...turn up seeking a cancellation and which of the three is usually the cheapest anyway? I certainly don't want the horrors of Calais or the M25 . Thank you in anticipation.

    I would look on tinternet cos the price will vary all three will take you into Portsmouth I think. Brittainy Ferries is Cherbourg and Caen ,I always found them to be expensive DFDS do the Le Havre Route

    Internet booking always cheaper. Once had to just head for home quickly and bought at the port---very expensive.
    DFDS from either Le Havre or Dieppe. If you join their loyalty scheme you might find on first trip after joining they give you a free cabin. I found Dieppe easier to navigate/ better sign posted than Le Havre.

    LD lines no longer run ferries to the UK, DFDS operate the Newhaven - Dieppe route probably the same boats though.

    BF now have the Western Channel to themselves apart from Condor Ferries fast service via the Channel Islands.
