Take the train to Bordeaux

Hop on Eurostar at St Pancras International and, with no time wasted getting to and hanging around airports, you’ll be on your way south in no time.

Arrive at the station 45-60 minutes before your train leaves so you have enough time to clear security.

You’ll travel at Paris Gare du Nord, where you’ll connect to Gare Montparnasse to continue on to Bordeaux.

What’s on board?

Stretch out in our comfy seats and watch a film or browse the web with free wi-fi and onboard entertainment as you speed to Paris.

There’s plenty of space to stow luggage, both above your seat and at the entrance to your carriage.

With no weight or liquid restrictions, you can bring a picnic or visit Café Metropole, our bar buffet, when you’re feeling peckish.

 

Changing stations in Paris

Take Metro 4 towards  Mairie de Montrouge, which will take you directly to Montparnasse Bienvenue in approximately 45 minutes.

You’ll be in First or Second Class and your seat and coach number will be on your ticket. There’s an onboard bar buffet and plug sockets in First Class.

You’ll arrive at Bordeaux St-Jean station, not far from the city centre.

Bordeaux uncorked

Elegant and bursting with charm, there’s more to Bordeaux than fine wine and good food (though that’s a very good place to start). So get sightseeing and work up an appétit.

Free and cheap

  • Enjoy free entry to the Musée d’Aquitaine on the first Sunday of the month.
  • Stroll around the Jardin Public or Parc Palmer.
  • Admire the gothic splendour of St Michel church.

Food glorieux food

Try grenier Médocain, a regional recipe for succulent pork charcuterie, perfectly paired with a beautiful Bordeaux wine.

Bring a few bottles back to savour and re-live the holiday at home.

Burgundy makes you think of silly things, Bordeaux makes you talk of them and Champagne makes you do them.
