Trains to France

From the corner cafés of Montmartre to the lavender fields of Provence, it's never been easier to explore every corner of France by train.

With Eurostar tickets to suit every budget and trains leaving for Paris up to 18 times a day, start your escape in London or Kent and arrive rested and raring to go, right in the heart of the action.

The perfect place for romantic strolls or extravagant sprees, Paris is hard to beat for a weekend break. Treat someone special or splash out with your friends in the City of Light. But don't forget, there's more to France than Paris.

Surprise your little ones with a trip to Disneyland® Paris or, with a quick change en route, hit the piste and show off your skills in the French Alps. 

And when you're ready for some serious R&R, head to the Med. Don your shades and settle into a beach-front bistro on a balmy evening to watch the world go by and the sun go down over a glass of something délicieux. With so much to do and more trains than ever, there's never been a better time to explore France by rail.
