During the summer months there are regular day and night sailings from Porstmouth to Caen Ouistreham.  Crossings take around six hours, which gives you plenty of time to sit back, relax and enjoy the trip. This is absolutely ideal as the port is very close to Sword beach and the D-Day story really does starts as soon as you step off the ferry.  I can easily pick-up foot passengers from the Ouistreham ferry terminal if required. Additionaly, there are 'Park and Sail' facilities available at Portsmouth and a shuttle bus from Ouistreham port to Caen, operated by Brittany Ferries.  For the latest offers check this website.

If you a planning to travel within the European Union you may find it handy to have the E111 card. Whilst this does not replace personal insurance, it does give you access to state healthcare in the event of an emergency.
