Travel between London and Lyon by train

Lyon is the capital of the Rhone-Alpes region and is France’s third largest city. Both a historical and gastronomic city, it is also the birthplace of cinema and has a vibrant cultural scene. The view from Fourviere basilica and the basilica itself are worth experiencing and a stroll through the streets and passageways of the old town is a popular favourite.Painted walls are a local speciality with around 100 beautiful trompe-l'oeils of all sizes around the city. And if you want to venture off the beaten path, the Musee Urbain Tony Garnier and the neighbourhood known as “Les etats-Unis” are definitely worth a visit. Train travel: an easy way to see Lyon

Lyon, which is around 5h15 from London, becomes accessible with the high-speed TGV train. Called TGV, the French high-speed trains are the best way to travel between major cities. At the TGV BAR shops, you can buy films on DVD, games for children and magazines. Departing from St. Pancras, you will need to take an Eurostar and a TGV train to go to Lyon Part Dieu station, which is situated in the heart of the city. You can then take the metro line B. Here you also have access to either one of the tramway lines: T1 and T3.
