Trains to Provence

Travel to Provence

Whether you fancy vineyard-hopping and château-spotting, or just basking in the sunshine and tucking into incredible seafood, Provence delivers every time.

If you're feeling artistic, find inspiration in Aix-en-Provence, a favourite with the likes of Cézanne and Picasso. The Musée Granet is a must, with works by all the great masters of impressionism and expressionism.

Wine connoisseurs and history buffs can check out the stunning architecture and sumptuous Châteauneuf-du-Pape of Avignon, while sun seekers and seafood lovers should hit the beaches and bistros of Marseille and Toulon.

Travel direct from London to Avignon in 5h49 and Marseille in 6h27 from 1 May 2015, or make a quick connection in Lille for Aix-en-Provence and Toulon.

Taking the train to the South of France has never been easier. So sit back, relax and let us whisk you away...
