Travelling from London to Angoulême by train

Angoulême. Not heard of it? Well, we don’t want you to just hear about it, we want you to experience this quaint French commune for yourself, we’ll even throw in a Eurostar trip, we’re good like that. So, take in the best that London has to offer, whether that’s a show in the West End, a shopping spree on Oxford Street or simply wandering the beautiful flower gardens in the royal parks, before swapping a buzzing capital with a bit of French country charm.

Eurostar trains are, in case you don’t know, pretty fabulous, with modern and comfortable seats and plenty of room for luggage, shopping and souvenirs. A beverage car provides yummy refreshments, though if you opt for Business Premier, you can enjoy food, priority boarding and lounge access, all included. Angoulême is 5.5 hours away, so sit back and enjoy the view as you speed towards France. A delegated city of art and culture, you can discover history by walking it, with ramparts around the city creating a fantasy vibe. Angoulême Cathedral is an icon of the city, though if you want to see more modern icons you might be surprised to know that once a year the city is host to Europe’s second biggest comic convention so heading to the city in January is a must for any self-confessed geek.
