Trains from London to Toulouse

Take the train to Toulouse

Speed south from central London after a quick 30-minute check-in at St Pancras International.

If you arrive a bit early, you’ll find plenty of shops, cafés and restaurants to pass the time. 

Our two-bag allowance means you’ll have lots of space for souvenirs and there’s no limit on liquids. Perfect for bringing back a bottle or two of something délicieux.

What’s on board?

In Standard Premier and Business Premier we’ll serve a meal en route at your spacious, comfortable seat, while Café Métropole has drinks, snacks and meals for Standard passengers.

In Paris you’ll need to transfer to Gare Montparnasse to take a TGV down to Toulouse. Standard Premier and Business Premier travellers will continue in First Class.

Arriving at Toulouse Matabiau

The journey from Paris to Toulouse Matabiau station takes around five and a half hours.

The station’s in the centre of town but you’ll find buses and taxis to take you to your hotel. There are also car hire desks if you’re planning to explore beyond Toulouse.


Take some time out in Toulouse

Dubbed La Ville Rose, Toulouse, with its distinctive pink brickwork, is the perfect backdrop for a riverside strolling, sightseeing, boat tripping and – bien sûr – over-indulging.

Southern favourites

When in Toulouse you must try cassoulet, a slow-cooked stew of beans, vegetables and duck, goose or Toulouse sausage. Finish with fénétra, an apricot tart topped with meringue.
