Harwich Harbour Ferry Services ltd

Where the Rivers Stour and Orwell meet, Harwich Harbour separates Harwich on the Essex side and Shotley and Felixstowe on the Suffolk side. The ferry service has been running since 1912 from April until December providing an hourly service for anyone wishing to cross. The crossing is popular for families, cyclists, dog walkers, ship spotters and everyone who enjoys being on the water.

The harbour area is very popular with visitors who particularly enjoy the beautiful scenery along the River Stour and River Orwell. There are many footpaths and cycle tracks along the riversides, bird and seal watchers are well catered for with feeding waders on extensive mudflats on both rivers and three reserves within easy reach.

From Harwich we depart from the Ha-Penny Pier, opposite the Pier Hotel. From Felixstowe you'll find us at the John Bradfield Viewing Area on View Point Road and, in the middle, in Shotley we depart from the Marina. Full details on our website.

Many visitors also enjoy close-up views of the massive vessels travelling to and from one of Europe's largest container terminals at Felixstowe, as well as the hundreds of yachts sailing through the harbour to their marinas up river. There are a range of facilities at each of the departure points and connections with local bus services.
