Eurostar South Of France Now On Sale

Eurostar's new year round service to Lyon, Avignon and Marseille starts on May 1 2015. Tickets are on sale now with fares to Lyon from £89 return in Standard Class, and £189 in Standard Premier. Fares to Avignon and Marseille start from £99 return.

The journey from St Pancras to Lyon takes just over four and a half hours, to Avignon just under six hours and to Marseille just under six and a half hours. There will be up to five services a week, depending on the time of year.

Travelling by Eurostar brings other benefits such as a 2 for 1 offer for entry to temporary exhibitions and permanent collections, simply by showing your Eurostar ticket. The MuCEM in Marseille, a national museum dedicated to Mediterranean cultures, and the Musée des Confluences in Lyon (opening in December 2014), a science centre and anthropology museum, are both now part of this offer. Eurostar’s partnership with Avis offers customers 10percent off car hire.

Passengers travelling from France back to the UK can board their train without the need to arrive 30 minutes before departure, because check in, security and immigration checks will take place at Lille Europe, where customers leave the train before continuing the journey to Ashford and London. Lille Europe has recently re opened following extension and refurbishment in preparation for welcoming passengers from Lyon and the South of France.
