Harwich Ferry Terminal Taxis: Taxi Transfers to and from Harwich
Harwich is a well-known ferry terminal, and extensively used – it handles about 1 million passengers per year. Most are travelling between here and the Hook of Holland on one of the “superferries” operated by StenaLine.
Until the end of September 2014, ferries from Harwich to Esbjerg, Denmark, were also in operation. This service has now ceased, but is intended to resume in Easter 2015 under a different operator.
Harwich is also a cruise terminal, from which liners tour the Baltic and the Mediterranean – and it’s a regular port of call during summer cruises.
Whether you’re taking a short break in the Netherlands or embarking on a cruise, you will need to get to your ferry or liner in good time to board, and it’s always beneficial if you can avoid a stressful journey to your ship. For this reason, getting a taxi with Airport Cars UK is ideal!
Getting to and from Harwich Ferry Terminal
The A120 runs to the ferry terminal at Parkeston Quay from Essex and Hertfordshire, and there are several A-road links en route. There is also easy access from the M11 and the M25, as well as East Anglia.
Wherever you’re coming from – or going to, if your ferry has pulled into Harwich – our drivers will know the most efficient route, so you can rest assured that you’ll enjoy a comfortable ride to the terminal.
You can book your taxi now by filling in the Airport Cars UK journey calculator, which is above – or by calling +44 (0) 330 088 2222 and speaking to a dispatcher.
Top 10 things to do in Harwich
If you’ve got a few hours to spare or you’re planning on a leisurely stay in the area before or after your trip to Holland, there are plenty of things to see and do!
1) Walk along the Ha’penny Pier. As you’ve probably guessed, the name comes from the toll that was charged a long time ago. The pier opened in 1853, a fire destroyed half of it in 1927, and today, it is an attraction that you should definitely visit if you have the time.
2) Even older is Redoubt Fort, built in 1808 to defend the port. Now listed, it is open as a museum, and is being restored.
3) If that’s not quite old enough, there’s the Treadwheel Crane, a person-powered hoisting device that was built in 1667. See it from afar or book a visit with the Harwich Society.
4) More recent but still over 100 years old is the Electric Palace Cinema, which opened in 1911! It still has its original projection room, silent screen and frontage – but you can enjoy modern releases here every weekend and other events during the week.
5) If you fancy a bit of time on the beach, go to Dovercourt Bay and step on to the shingle and sand. Try some windsurfing or jet-skiing, too!
6) Not far from there is the marshland and mud flats of Hemford Water National Nature Reserve, home to many species of bird, especially during winter. In summer, you might see some seals.
7) Take a trip to Landguard Fort in Felixstowe, which, like Redoubt Fort, was built to guard Harwich. Today, it is an English Heritage property and you can visit it between April and October.
8) Britain’s oldest recorded town isn’t too far away from Harwich: Colchester, which is full of attractions. There is something for everyone there – shops, restaurants, a zoo, an impressive Norman castle (also a museum), and much more!
9) Go to the popular seaside resort of Clacton-on-Sea, which has some delightful seafront gardens, sandy beaches, and a pier that offers plenty of amusements for the children!
10) Explore Walton-on-the-Naze, another seaside resort that is situated – as its name suggests – on the Naze. This is a headland that is home to plenty of wildlife – and a tower, which was used as a radar station during World War Two.
