Tickets go on sale today (Wednesday) for a new quick rail link between London and Bordeaux.
A new high-speed line in France will reduce journey time by more than one hour, offering an alternative to flying.
Eurostar services from London have been specially timed to ensure a fast transfer to local fast trains with a connection in Paris from Gare du Nord to Montparnasse.
The first service is to run on July 2 with fares starting at £110 return
Eurostar commercial director, Nick Mercer, 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.”
