I have crossed a number of times and for a 1 - 2 week trip, the ferry crossing Calais-Dover were always cheaper then the train. May be the ferry crossing is longer altogether but I like the crossing on the boat, have my breakfast and sit in the wind.

If crossing by ferry be aware of the customs / security controls : on our last crossing the British P&O security staff on the french side confiscated our salami knifes, declaring that they were totally forbidden in the UK. Mind we were on our way out (after spending 10 days in the UK and Ireland without killing), back in France already but apparently still under UK law(?). The knifes are legal in France, so it wouldn't have been an issue to let us go with them. I guess this guy needed something for his statistics.
