Having planned to have the new Weymouth to Cherbourg high speed ferry route up and running this summer, the operator now hopes the route will be operational in 2017. The 2 hour high-speed ferry route between Weymouth and Cherbourg will significantly shorten journey times and aims to compete with the traditional Dover-Calais route in terms of sea + port time. Current Cherbourg routes are from Portsmouth with a 3 hour crossing time and from Poole with a 4.5 hour crossing.

Situated at the northernmost part of France, a mere thirty-something miles from England, the Pas-de-Calais region has glorious countryside, beautiful sandy beaches, lots of good golf courses, lovely seaside towns with great seafood restaurants, not to mention the sophisticated charm of Le Touquet and the stunning Flemish architecture of the market towns in the region.
The Dover ferry and Euro tunnel crossing points mean the Pas-de-Calais is a popular destination for tourists looking for an easy foray to France and equally as popular for people looking for a bolt-hole across the channel to enjoy la belle vie without the big road trip involved with travelling further south.
