This finally allows Via Francigena pilgrims departing from Canterbury to cross the English Channel and reach France.
This is very good news after the uneasy situation that had been ongoing from March to now. We hope that this service will be maintained on a regular basis.
As a reminder, P&O Ferries is the only carrier offering foot passenger service across the English Channel, while neither DFDS nor Irish Ferries, the other companies operating on this route, have plans to offer foot service in the short term.
For those interested in crossing the Channel via ferry, you can reserve a seat directly on the P&O Ferries website. Updates on the service are also available in real time on the company’s Twitter profile.
