Thanks Frank.

Yes, it was Bath in southwest England. The ferry I took is the  
Cherbourg-Poole route. From Poole it is only about 100 km to Bath,  
along some pretty country roads through villages, so it takes a couple  
of hours. Other crossings in the same area are Caen-Portsmouth. There  
are also ferries directly from northern Spain to southern England  
(Santander-Plymouth and one from Bilbao as well) but those crossings  
take a lot longer, 19 and 26 hours respectively, and are of course  
also considerably more expensive. And for me using them would still  
mean having to drive around 800 km from Alicante to the Spanish cities  
from which those ferries depart, so all in all it is faster for me to  
drive to northern France and take a quick ferry across.
