Best deals are usually found at LD Lines who sail from Dover to Bolougne/Calais. The journey by car from Bolougne normally takes about 8 hours. Tolls are not too expensive and the French Motorways are generally very good, and as at April 09 petrol averages at 1.35 Euro a litre and Diesel 1.12. 95% of lorries are not allowed to travel on a Sunday in France, so the roads are even quieter.

You can sail to Le Havre. It is personal taste at the end of the day, but it does mean less driving, but about the same time to get here.

Eurostar is also a good option!
