Trains to Perpignan
Travel to Perpignan
Train tickets from £60.50 o/w*
With Salvador Dalí once declaring Perpignan station “the centre of the universe”, it seems only natural to arrive by rail, following a leisurely route through France to the Mediterranean.
As the most southerly city in the Languedoc region and just 160km from Barcelona, Perpignan only became part of France in 1659, and has proudly retained its colourful Catalan customs and traditions.
Make your first stop the Palais des Rois de Majorque, home to the Kings of Majorca who ruled from the city in 13th century.
A stroll through the Saint-Jean quarter meanwhile, is like stepping back in time with its narrow lanes and 14th-century cathedral. With tickets from £60.50 o/w*, you can be in the heart of the city in eight and a half hours, with a quick change in Lille.
And with up to 10 trains a day from London, you can plan the perfectly timed getaway.
