Harwich Transportation: 10 reviews and 19 photos
Harwich's International Port is still quite a busy freight and cruise terminal and is also the base for Stena Line ferries to and from Hook of Holland. There are two daily ferries which ply this route the Hollandica and the Britannica and both take freight, vehicle and foot passengers.
Daytime sailings leave Harwich at 9 am whilst overnight services leave at 23.45. The crossing time is about six and a half hours although the overnight boats allow an extra hour before disembarkation.
The ferries are modern and comfortable with plenjty to do aboard and the brand new (as of May 2010) superferry Hollandica even has WiFi throughout the ship (including in the cabins).
For foot passengers the company offers a "Rail-Sail" package which includes train travel from any National Express East Anglia station to any Dutch station with prices starting from £29. For overnight crossings a cabin booking is compulsory but these are quite cheap with off-season rates from about £25.
