Ticket sales for the new high-speed train service between London and Bordeaux using a new rail line in France that reduces journey time by more than 1hr went on sale from Eurostar on Wednesday. The service begins on 2 July.
Passengers from the UK make a connection in Paris from Gare du Nord to Montparnasse, with services timed specially to ensure a fast transfer between the Eurostar and the local high-speed train into the heart of the French city.
Eurostar commercial director Nick Mercer said: “With the new high-speed line, passengers will benefit from a more civilised way to travel from city centre to city centre, a generous baggage allowance and superior comfort on board our new e320 trains.”
Bordeaux is tipped to be a popular destination with close proximity to the Atlantic coast and some of France’s favourite centres including Île de Ré, Cap Ferret and Arcachon and the vineyards of Saint-Émilion and Médoc within easy reach.
Passengers travelling on the new e320 train can sit back and unwind in more spacious surroundings with free wi-fi and more than 300 hours of entertainment all streamed straight to their phones, tablets or laptops.
