Newhaven is an English channel ferry port that is located on the south coast of England in East Sussex.
The town lies at the entrance to the River Ouse and was officially recognised as the port of Newhaven in approximately 1882. Prior to this the port was located at Seaford.
There are a whole variety of attractions for all the family. Paradise Park and the Fort are extremely popular however many visit just for the beautiful coastal scenery.
The port has a pleasant marina and busy fishing fleet but is most popular for its cross channel ferries. The small yet extremely busy port connects England with Dieppe in France. Newhaven is the closest port to London and has daily crossings from the UK to France.
Occupying a particularly convenient location between Portsmouth and Dover means that the crossing to Dieppe in France is extremely popular.
