Eurostar will open ticket sales for the new route from London to Bordeaux tomorrow.
The new high-speed line in France will reduce journey time by over one hour, offering passengers a more convenient alternative to flying.
With a simple connection in Paris from Gare du Nord to Montparnasse, passengers can travel from the heart of London to the centre of Bordeaux, with services specially timed to ensure a fast transfer between the Eurostar and local high-speed train.
The new line is testament to the increasing appeal of the city, which offer travellers the ultimate French escape.
Nick Mercer, commercial director, Eurostar, said: “There is a growing appetite for Bordeaux, as British travellers are drawn to the gastronomic and cultural attractions of the city and nearby regions.
“With the new high-speed line, passengers will benefit from a more civilised way to travel with city-centre-to city-centre travel, a generous baggage allowance and superior comfort on board our new trains.”
With its close proximity to the Atlantic Coast, Bordeaux is extremely well connected linking some of France’s most popular seaside resorts including Île de Ré, Cap Ferret, Arcachon.
For those looking to taste some of Europe’s finest wines, the world famous vineyards of Saint-Émilion and Médoc are within easy reach.
