Britain’s annual National Ferry Fortnight

Britain’s annual National Ferry Fortnight

Now back for its tenth year, the National Ferry Fortnight in Britain run by Discover Ferries finally has a schedule. The popular attraction among both tourists and locals is set to take place later this year from 14th to 28th April 2018.

The National Ferry Fortnight was made as a way to showcase Britain’s entire exclusive 75-plus ferry routes as well as educate people about the benefits of traveling by sea.

For its 2018 campaign, the National Ferry Fortnight will carry the theme "take your passion with you". This will supposedly highlight that ferry travel helps enable people to pursue their dreams, regardless of whether or not it concerns the seas.

The annual National Ferry Fortnight also offers wildlife enthusiasts a chance to spot marine wildlife from the deck of the ferry. Food and wine lovers will also love the tour as they can bring back a smorgasbord of wines, boutique gins, craft beers, and more.

Discover Ferries will also use the National Ferry Fortnight as a chance to share advice to people about taking care of ferry vehicles and/or equipment when on holiday.

According to Discover Ferries Director Emma Batchelor, "there are more than 38 million passenger journeys by ferry every year with hundreds of families, couples, and friends, walking, cycling, and driving onto ferries to enjoy the freedom of a great value, independent holiday."

Batchelor then added that it was their job to encourage people who have not considered a ferry yet and understand why it has become so popular.

During this year's National Ferry Fortnight, Discover Ferries' members will also publish ideas for holidays on various ferry routes including Belgium, France, the Scottish Islands, and more.
