How long would it have taken for Birtish soldiers to get to France in WWI?

How long would the ferry via the English Channel have taken? Similar to now or plus a few hours? How long were the trains to the front line? Any info you can give me would be much apriciated. Thanks.

    Boulogne, Calais and Dunkirk were the main ports used by the British and they are within two or three hours sailing time from England. Troops disembarking at Dunkirk were only an hours train journey away from the front line.
