Zeebrugge is a ferry port that connects the continent with the UK via Belgium. It is one of Belgium’s busiest ports but is relatively quiet with regards to ferry traffic. The one route offered to the UK is the Zeebrugge to Hull route. There is a choice of up to 7 sailings weekly and the duration is around 13 hours and 15 minutes.
Often overshadowed by the port of Bruges, the port of Zeebrugge has a shorter history. It is an artificial port constructed toward the end of the 19th century and into the early 20th century. It was built as a response to the marine channel to Bruges becoming temporarily filled with silt. It has seen a steady increase in maritime traffic since its construction and now plays a key role in not just ferry routes but also cargo and trading.
The Hull to Zeebrugge is a route that is operated exclusively by P&O Ferries.
