Getting to Morocco - Morocco by car and boat

The majority of holiday visitors to Morocco fly. Flights from the UK take approximately three hours. However, there are other ways to get there if you have a bit more time and would prefer a more scenic route! Trains through France and Spain are a relaxing way to get down to the ferries crossing the strait of Gibraltar (which now only takes 35 minutes).**

Driving times are generally 30 hours (non stop) from London to Marrakech.  Best split over 3 nights in Paris, Madrid and the south of Spain but some do it quicker!

** Lawrence of Morocco is not able to make boat or train reservations for you.
