France travel Dieppe - Bayeux watch

    • Thread Starter

    I know this is a long shot, but can any one help! I am trying to plan a trip to France September. I am looking at a little resort near Bayeux and have found a ferry that runs between Newhaven - Dieppe, which is a better option that going to Calais which would create even more travelling. The hitch is, we won't have a car. Is there anyone by chance who has done this journey themselves and can make any suggestions?

    I lived in Northern France during 2008/2009.

    Have you not considered taking the ferry to Le Havre? Much closer to Bayeux than Dieppe, and runs from Portsmouth, which is only 2-ish hours from Kent, with plenty of coaches/trains going there. The overnight crossing is much more bearable than the midday/evening crossing, and is very very cheap if you opt for a standard seat with a sleeping bag, or a sleeper seat.

    From Le Havre, you can get a coach from the bus station (next to the train station) (Bus Vert - http://www.busverts.fr/_hiver/plan.asp) towards Caen. Would personally recommend stopping off overnight in Trouville though, as it's a lovely little seaside resort with plenty to see and lots of fabulous restaurants.

    From Caen you can take an onwards bus (or possibly train) to Bayeux, which isn't far.

    Hope this helps
