To get from the Netherlands or France to Great Britain you have to pick one option - a ferry or a train (Eurotunnel) under the English Channel. If the ferry cruise is long a driver may rest and he/she is ready to go. If the cruise is short, then the driver will not rest. When you travel between Great Britain and the continental Europe remember about traffic change.
The map above shows places from which you can get to Great Britain. The red one is Eurotunnel, ferries are marked in blue. There are four British ports and three located in continental Europe. The ports are not directly next to cities but for better orientation a nearby city is provided.
Therefore (from south):
- from Calais (France) you can get to Dover (Great Britain); quite close to London.
- from Rotterdam (the Netherlands) you can get to Felixstowe (close to London) or to Grimsby (near Liverpool, Manchester and other centrally located cities);
- from Amsterdam (the Netherlands) you can get to Newcastle (in case of such long cruise your driver will rest enough).
Use a ferry to get to a port. Stop at the anchor icon to establish the place of destination ([Enter] by default). In some ports you have to enter the ferry and park on the anchor icon there. Remember that each port has established connections with particular cities.
A window of available destination place will be displayed. If the port has more connections you can choose your city. This window displays time of your trip and its cost. When you get to your destination place, you can leave the port and continue your trip.
In case of the Eurotunnel you have to park on the train wagon and go under the English Channel. Use the map to get to the loading place (each side has one such place). Find an open exit.
Go down and park your truck on a green icon displayed on a wagon (confirm by pressing [Enter]).
Just as in the case of ports, you will see a window where you can select your destination place. This time, however the selection is limited. Approve it and appropriate sum will be charged from your account.
You will be transported to the other end of the tunnel. Leave the wagon and use signs to exit the place.
