Take the train to Bourg-Saint-Maurice
Taking Eurostar from London to the French Alps is easy and effortless.
Set off from London St Pancras International, but be sure to get to the station at our recommended arrival time.
When you get to Lille Europe, head up to the main floor and check the departures board. When you’ve found your platform, head back down to platform level, get on your connecting Eurostar train to Bourg-Saint-Maurice, and hop off at your stop.
On your way home, just do the trip in reverse on a Sunday. But be sure to jump on your Eurostar train at least 20 minutes before departure. You’ll then need to go through border control and security before you board your Eurostar train at Lille Europe.
