Trains to Lyon leave from St Pancras International and you need to arrive 45-60 mins before departure to clear security. Then you can settle in on board as we speed you to the gastronomic capital of France.
Our trains are designed with comfort in mind, so whichever class you travel in, you’ll have lots of space to relax and enjoy the 4h 41min journey to Lyon Part-Dieu.
The return journey
You'll also be leaving from Lyon Part Dieu station, but no need to arrive early to go through security as we’ll be doing security and immigration checks later in the journey, in Lille. On arrival there, our on board and station teams will guide you every step of the way.
In Standard Premier and Business Premier you’ll get a complimentary breakfast and lunch en route. Standard passengers can visit Café Métropole for meals, drinks and snacks.
Our trains have spacious, four-seater tables, which are perfect for families or groups of friends. Get up and stretch your legs or just sit back and enjoy the changing scenery.
Eurostar trains arrive at Lyon Part-Dieu station. Just step off the train and straight onto a metro, bus or tram, and start exploring this vibrant, foodie’s paradise.
At some point during your visit, take a break from eating and sightseeing and head to the stunning Musée des Confluences where you can get 2 for 1 entry with your Eurostar ticket.
A UNESCO World Heritage site with superb restaurants, world-class museums and galleries, fabulous festivals and two rivers running through the centre – Lyon pretty much has it all.
