The ferry's definitely a cheaper way to go than Eurostar, but it also takes a good long while to make the crossing.. I don't know much about 'em, but my usual recommendation for the London/Paris hop is to find a budget flight...

http://www.whichbudget.com is a good place to start!

I'm assuming you mean a ferry crossing from the UK to Calais, because Paris is landlocked and you can't take a ferry there...

The Dover-Calais ferry isn't that expensive, but you'll have to get yourself from London to Dover and then from Calais to Paris. Check out http://www.nationalexpress.com, I think they have coach service from London to Paris via the Chunnel.

Yes, you CAN go from Calais to Dover. Those are the two points for the ferry & chunnel crossings across the English Channel. The way your first post was worded it sounded like you wanted to take a ferry from Paris to Calais, which isn't possible (and is also redundant).

Check out the link Omisan posted, I'm sure that'll be the best help for you! Good luck!
