This infographic explains the basic maths required to work out whether it is worthwhile going on such a day trip. Factor in a child or two and there's less capacity for wine but you could still have a fun day out exploring Northern France.

There's plenty to explore in the region and the excellent road links from the French port meaning day-tripping to Lille, Dunkirk or Rouen are all a possibility. Travelling to another country is also very feasible, with Bruges and Ghent in Belgium under around 1½ hours drive from the port of Calais.

You can book a ferry sailing from Dover to Calais.
