More About Harwich

Harwich, is one of England's ferry ports, busy with cars, people and freight leaving for the Continent, yet a town with some history, facing Felixstowe in Suffolk across the estuary.

Harwich has some "claims to fame", the Mayflower that took the Pilgrim Fathers to America was a Harwich ship, and Samuel Pepys was it's MP. Harwich has a rich history with many sites of interest, most of which are centred on Old Harwich.

There are several ferry services per day to Hoek Van Holland in The Netherlands, taking around 8 hours, as well as less frequent services to Denmark. The ferry port is easily accessible from the A120 road if travelling by car, and Harwich International train station is directly connected to the terminal building.

The DutchFlyer mixed-mode ticket allows travel from any National Express East Anglia rail station (including London Liverpool Street, Cambridge and Norwich) to any Dutch Railways station and include the ferry from Harwich to Hoek Van Holland.

Harwich Ferry Port

Harwich is fairly small and all sights can be walked between. First runs 2 urban bus routes, the most useful of which is the 20/20A which runs every 30 minutes between Old Harwich and Parkeston Quay Ferry Terminal and also serves Parkeston Retail Park. Local trains bound for Manningtree also link the 3 rail stations (see Get Around/Rail) every hour. Driving a car around Harwich is easy - traffic is light and parking in the town centre is very cheap.

Local attractions include two lighthouses; the Electric Palace cinema, one of the oldest in Britain and now restored to its original state; the Redoubt fort, dating from the Napoleonic era; a lighthouse museum; a small beach; and of course ship-watching. Many attractions are open during the summer only.

Shopping in Harwich itself is extremely limited, although there are a number of art, antique and book stores. Nearby Dovercourt has a number of small supermarkets, mainstream high-street shops, banks and so on, while Parkeston has recently been given the 'kiss of life' and has a number of newly built stores to shop at, including Peacocks, Focus and Argos. Harwich has several supermarkets including Somerfield (Dovercourt High Street), Fiveways (Dovercourt), Morrisons (Parkeston) and Lidl (Parkeston) as well as a couple of Co-op convenience stores.

The Pier Hotel has a well-regarded restaurant specialising in, although not limited to, seafood. The Pier Cafe, opposite the hotel on the pier itself, is especially popular during the summer. Two recently-opened establishments have also become popular: the Ship Inn, serving modern British food, and Thai Up At The Quay, a Thai restaurant. A number of pubs also serve food, notably the New Bell Inn (lunchtimes only).

Getting to Harwich

By train
The conurbation of Harwich, Dovercourt and Parkeston is served by 3 train stations. The largest is Harwich International, servicing the international ferry terminal, Parkeston village and Parkeston retail park. Dovercourt station is located just of Dovercourt High Street (the conurbation's main shopping area), and Harwich Town station is located in the heart of Old Harwich, within 5 minutes walk of the Ha'penny pier. There's an hourly local service between Harwich Town and Manningtree, calling at all stations, which usually then runs semi-fast to London Liverpool Street - expect journey times of around 100 minutes. Heading north to Ipswich and Norwich, change at Manningtree, cross via the underpass to Platform 3 and there's usually a connecting service waiting on the other side. From Harwich International there's also the DutchFlyer train which takes arriving and departing Stena Line passengers between the ferry terminal and London Liverpool Street. This train is usually more spacious (12 cars instead of 4) and is much faster than the local train. There is also a twice-daily service to Cambridge (via Ipswich) which connects with the Stena Line ferry service.

By car
The main route into Harwich is the A120 trunk road, which connects with the A12 at Colchester and the M11 at Stansted Airport. If coming from the Midlands along the A14, change to the A12 at Ipswich and then to the A120 at Colchester, or alternatively exit the A14 at Ipswich at take the A137 local road towards Manningtree and then take the B-roads towards Harwich - this way is more direct but slower as it uses narrow countryside roads.

By bus
Regional bus services terminate at Harwich Town Bus Station, opposite Harwich Town train station. There's 2 principal routes - services to Colchester run every 30 minutes and take approx. 1hr20minutes and services to Clacton run hourly and take just under 1 hour.
