Enter our competition to win a return ferry crossing for up to four people from Portsmouth to Le Havre with Brittany Ferries

This competition has now closed.

With regular Brittany Ferries crossings to Le Havre from Portsmouth, there’s no excuse not to make time for more than a passing visit to this historic city. To help celebrate Le Havre’s 500th birthday, France Magazine has teamed up with Portsmouth International Port and Brittany Ferries to give you the chance to go to the city for free. We are giving away a return crossing with a car and up to 4 people worth £500.

Celebrations in Le Havre come to a climax on 8 October. That’s the day in 1517 that King Francis I formed the port city on the Normandy coastline. Five centuries later the city’s leaders are promising a ‘major rendezvous’ based around a new digital and interactive artistic masterpiece.

Visitors arriving before the big party can enjoy a number of special events in September and early October. They include an exhibition that sees Claude Monet’s “Impression, Sunrise” return to its birthplace, and the chance to visit a floating Zen Temple in the middle of the docks. Across the summer thousands of visitors have placed wishes for the futures in this relaxing piece of art.

Those who can’t make it to Le Havre in time for this major milestone can still enjoy a wonderful visit. The city is so much more than a jumping off point for holidays in France, with the renowned Museum of Modern Art (Le MuMa), and more than its fair share of gastronomic delights to enjoy. Foodies will delight in a visit to Le Havre’s fish market, which has been given a makeover as a living legacy of the 500 year anniversary celebrations.

Brittany Ferries has daily sailings to Le Havre from Portsmouth International Port, as well as other nearby ports in Normandy. The ships Baie de Seine and Etretat are often on this route. Frequent travellers need little reminder of the benefits of ferry travel to France from the Waterfront City. Situated right on the motorway network, there’s easy access to Portsmouth International Port from London and beyond.

This summer Portsmouth International Port launched its #portsmouthtakesyouthere campaign - highlighting a wide range of memorable experiences passengers can enjoy on both sides of the channel. With so much to offer travellers, Britain’s Best Connected Port is the perfect choice for a hassle free holiday or short break.
