Getting to Provence from the UK couldn’t be easier by Eurostar, with the fastest direct connections from London St-Pancras International to Avignon or Marseille taking six and a half hours. One-way fares to both destinations start from £49.50*. After a quick 30-minute check-in you’ll be on your way to Provence in style: with lots of legroom and space to unwind, Eurostar’s seats are designed for a comfier journey, while the two-bag luggage allowance means you needn’t hold back on the packing. Since all the passport checks are done before you leave the UK, you can step straight off the train and into the action. You’ll find local buses, trains and taxis at both stations to take you wherever you want to go, and there’s also a good choice of car hire desks. What’s more, get 2-4-1 entry to Marseille’s MuCEM with your Eurostar ticket – and children under four travel free!

*Price based on a return journey and tickets at this fare are only available for travel (according to your local departure time): between midday and midnight on a Monday; anytime on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday; and between midday and midnight on a Saturday. Subject to availability at the time of booking. A £3 credit card fee may apply.
