Another comfortable way of crossing the chanel is to use Eurotunnel. More expensive than the ferries, they are still worth considering as they have a bigger timetable. Click above to get a quote.
A more traditional way is the boat ferries, slower,

Driving in EuropeInformation and advice on road safety equipment and the European requirements for driving on the Continent. Please note that you will require the following motoring equipment to legally drive in Europe.
Headlamp adaptors Your vehicle’s headlamps are specifically designed for driving in the UK on the left hand side of the road. Consequently, when driving in Europe on the right, you will dazzle oncoming drivers, which is dangerous and illegal. When driving at any time, day or night – this must be prevented by adapting your headlamps. Warning Triangle If your vehicle breaks down or is involved in an accident, you should place a warning triangle 50-150 metres behind your vehicle to warn approaching traffic. The use of hazard lights alone is NOT sufficient in certain situations, for example an accident on a blind corner. GB Plate These are required by law to indicate country of registration. Spare Bulbs All lamps, including lenses and reflectors must be in working order, even during daylight hours. Failure to be in a position to replace a blown exterior bulb could result in an on the spot fine. First Aid Kit & Fire Extinguisher The European Good Samaritan Law requires every driver to stop and provide assistance when encountering an accident or incident, providing it is safe to do so. This may require a first aid kit and/or fire extinguisher and it is therefore advisable to carry these when driving in Europe. Reflective Vest Anybody providing roadside assistance, or leaving a stranded vehicle should always wear a reflective vest to ensure their own safety. Be Safe, Be Legal
