34km—that's all that separates us from our French neighbours. The Dover to Calais crossing is busy, and with good reason—you're but a short ferry ride away from a whole new world of festive shopping treats. This Escape gives you both a base in Dover at the four-star Ramada Dover and a pair of day tickets to Calais.

Shopping can be a tiring experience which is why we've bolted in a two-night stay for two people around your Channel crossing for £149 (up to a £317.30 value). Drop your bags in your well-appointed double room where an en suite and included Wi-Fi access awaits tired guests looking to relax and rejuvenate. The hotel's convenient location allows for great access to the Dover Ferry and Cruise Terminals as well as Dover town centre.

On your first evening you'll sit down to a table d'hôte dinner in The Olive Tree Restaurant where a talented kitchen team serves mouthwatering cuisine—this could be the perfect time to forge a battle plan for your shopping pursuits. Come the morning you'll want to fuel up for a busy day out with your included breakfast. When you do return from Calais you could spend an evening in The Octagon Bar with a refreshing glass of beer or a tasty cocktail.

Dover has its own sightseeing spoils including the iconic White Cliffs and the world-famous Dover Castle. You'll certainly want to set aside a little time to explore these local attractions—but first, the important business of Christmas shopping. Included in this Escape are two P&O day return tickets (foot passengers) to ensure safe passage to Calais where you can begin your retail expedition. Calais has several great shopping malls and hypermarkets often retailing cheaper than UK prices. This could be the ideal opportunity to pick up gifts or stock your cupboards with Christmas wine and food.

This Escape is for two people. The included P&O ferry tickets are valid for foot passengers only. Guests can upgrade to using a car on the ferry for £20. Got a question? Contact our Travel Concierge on 0207-763-4600 or escapes.uk@livingsocial.com between 9 a.m. and 5.30 p.m.

  • "[Calais is known for] rich cultural heritage, museums, French gastronomic delights, spirited nightlife, and its Belfries."
