Harwich is a city in the east of England. You can get there with a ship from the "Hook Of Holland". There is an abandoned gas station where you can sleep.
From Hook of Holland
The ferry line from Hook of Holland is operated by Stena Line. Their website doesn't disclose all information and as such I would advise against booking from there. You can use it to estimate the prices and approach drivers. Most important prices are € 25 for an additional car passenger, € 50 for a bicycle passenger and 70 € for a foot passenger (Feb. 2022). It is well worth waiting for someone to add you onto their ticket, but modifying an already booked ticket might be more costly / difficult.
The employees at the counter can be disrespectful if you identify yourself as a hitchhiker, even going as far as insulting you and refusing service entirely. However, as soon as you come back with a driver, they'll sort everything out just fine (though slightly disgruntled).
