Not a traditional ferry, but the crossing from Lydd Airport to Le Touquet has an interesting history as being a long-running regular vehicle transportation service during the 20th Century, featuring roll-on/roll-off aircraft to ferry cars from Kent to France.

Today, services continue as passenger only.
