Getting to Aix-en-Provence couldn’t be simpler. Either take Eurostar direct to Marseille and hop in a taxi or bus to Aix, or change onto a TGV in Paris or Lille.
You can leave from St Pancras International in London or from one of our stations in Kent. Just arrive up to 30 minutes before your train leaves to clear security and customs.
Once on board, settle into your spacious seat and tuck in to drinks,snacks or a meal from Café Métropole. If you'd rather bring your own picnic, there's no limit on liquids, so don't forget the bubbly.
And with free wi-fi and entertainment on our new trains, as well as sockets to keep your gadgets charged, you can relax en route with a film or box set.
If you’re travelling directly to Marseille, Aix is just a 25-minute drive away.
If you’re changing in Paris, take the direct RER train from Gare du Nord to Gare de Lyon, where you can catch a connecting train. At Lille, you just need to change platforms.
Your train will arrive at Aix-en-Provence TGV station, which is close to the city centre.
