Between British and French shores Jul 16, 2013
Condor Ferries operates from three UK ports - Poole, Portsmouth, Weymouth connecting with shores of France and Channel Islands - Guernsey and Jersey. They run a regular scheduled service and offer ferry services to both, foot and car passengers. You do not have to pre-book your tickets, but there's no guarantee you'll be able to travel if you don't.

There's parking available at the terminal (fee payable - £5 per day), but it's not too big so it's good to get there early to find a space.

Boarding usually commences 20-30 minutes before scheduled departure, and although they ask you to have your passport ready to be inspected, it never happened during my both journeys.

When you check in at least 40 minutes before the planned departure, you'll be assigned seat number (on lower or upper deck) unless you reserved a seat in upgraded class. Bigger items of luggage will be check-in for the duration of the journey so you don't have to carry them around the deck area where space is limited.

On board, you can buy duty free products from the shop and there's also a good selection of food and drinks available from on-board bistro. Prices not much different then anywhere else.

Information screens located around the seating deck area provide up to date information on the progress of the ferry.

There's free access to outside deck area in good weather.

Overall, it was a good journey and I would definitely consider using Condor Ferries in the future making another trip across the Channel.

Price for return trip to ST Helier per person - £68.
