Take the train to the Ryder Cup

The 2018 Ryder Cup is coming to France

Golf fans, this summer's going to be ace! Why? Well, a little birdie told us that the legendary men's golf tournament - The Ryder Cup - is chipping its way across the pond from the United States to Paris. Things will tee off on 25th September 2018 and swing all the way through til the 30th September 2018. 

Where is the Ryder Cup held in Paris?

The tournament will be held at the Albatros Course of Le Golf National, which is a course in a suburb of Paris called Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines. We'd recommend taking the Eurostar from London St Pancras to Paris Gare du Nord and then hopping on the metro. 

Book your Eurostar tickets in advance on our app and we'll highlight the cheapest available fare. 

Getting the Eurostar from London to Paris

Channel hopping is a piece of cake with us, as you can book Eurostar tickets (at the same great fares) in an instant on our app or website, using Apple Pay, PayPal and more.

Most people catching the Eurostar to Paris start their trip at London St Pancras International, but you can also reach the French capital from Ebbsfleet International and Ashford.

Naturally, we think travelling to Paris by train is the best way. Just think, there’s no need to arrive at departures two hours early. Eurostar check in closes 30 minutes before departure, for those who have a Standard ticket. And, First Class ticket holders can check in as late as 10 minutes before departure – although, we’d recommend not cutting things too fine!

Trainline tip – It may sound obvious, but don’t forget your passport!

There’s no hand baggage restriction on liquids with Eurostar either, so you won’t have the nightmare of decanting all your lotions and potions into smaller bottles and squeezing them into a see-through bag.
