by Train direct from London to Avignon!

In the summer Eurostar runs a direct service from London St Pancras to Avignon (84 Vaucluse, Provence)!!

eurostar2Calling at Ashford International you can travel direct to Avignon without changing trains or battling your way through Paris from Gare de Nord to the Gare de Lyon. The journey takes under 6 hours and leaves on Saturday mornings between 28 June and 6 September 2014.

London to Avignon direct: Running every Saturday: Outbound from 28 June to 6 September 2014, and returns from 5 July to 13 September 2014.

The journey time on the return is a little longer as the train stops at Lille for UK immigration checks.

Avignon TGV station is just south of the city with frequent bus links. And of course with the train you have none of the hassle of airport check-ins and security queues (although there are formalities to go through at St Pancras International)

At other times although there may not be direct trains, you can change at Lille rather than endure the Paris station change.
