Britain’s annual National Ferry Fortnight will take place 5 – 19 March 2016. Now in its eighth year, the campaign, supported by the 12 members of Discover Ferries, the consumer-facing industry body for the ferry industry – is a two week showcase of Britain’s extensive 75-plus ferry routes.

This year, National Ferry Fortnight urges consumers and their families to experience taking a ferry for the first time or indeed to “re-discover” the joys of ferry travel. Following on from the huge success of National Ferry Fortnight 2015 and the campaign theme of ‘Ferry Freedom’, Discover Ferries has adopted the theme of ‘Be a Ferry First-Timer’ for National Ferry Fortnight 2016. Check back here on 5 March to see special added value offers from all 12 operators.
