Obviously when you thought about catching a ferry from Dover to Amsterdam you may well have not realised about all the other ferry ports in Britain. So it all depends on where you are coming from, If you are in Scotland, leaving from Newcastle is your best option, if you are in London, then Harwich will give you the shortest drive, If you are in the midlands, then it may well be decided by the flip of a coin.
