Your journey will be in two parts, Eurostar to Paris, Gare du Nord then onwards to Lourdes on a TGV from Gare Montparnasse.
If you’re travelling as a family group the train is a great option as you can sit together and move around easily.
With our two-bag luggage allowance you don’t have to worry about packing light and there are no restrictions on liquids.
On board Eurostar you’ll find comfortable reclining seats with UK and continental sockets and free wi-fi and onboard entertainment.
Snacks, meals and drinks are available at Café Metropole, our bar buffet. There are toilets in every carriage and baby changing facilities in some.
TGVs have a bar buffet, sockets at every seat and a free luggage allowance.
On arrival in Paris, get a taxi or take Metro Line 4, direction Mairie de Montrouge and go to Montparnasse Bienvenue.
Give yourself around 45 minutes for the transfer as there’s a bit of a walk from the metro to the station.
Your train will arrive at Lourdes station, a short hop from the town centre and the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes.
Best known as a site of pilgrimage, Lourdes is in the foothills of the Pyrénées, surrounded by stunning countryside with beautiful Lac de Lourdes as its centrepiece.
To find out more about the town’s history, pick up a leaflet at the tourist office and follow the self-guided tour.
You can also take the trail that follows in the footsteps of Bernadette.
Lourdes is a great place to start exploring the Parc National des Pyrénées.
Head for the hills to hike, bike or climb in fabulous scenery dotted with waterfalls, lakes and pretty mountain villages.
