Travel Information

There are various traveling options available to reach this wonderful city. My favorite mode of transport in Europe is as usual trains. Trains are becoming lifeline of the European. I choose high-speed Eurostar train (Chunnel Train) to reach this city. I took Chunnel train from London’s St Pancras International and reached Paris in record time of 2hr 15min. I really impressed with the comfortable seats, thrilling speed of 186mph, excellent on-board facilities and great food while traveling through Eurostar train in Europe. One thing I liked the most was short check in process while traveling through Eurostar train. From Paris, you have to change the station and simply take TGV to Angouleme. The journey time for London to Angouleme travel is around 5hr. Don’t miss to catch the glimpses of breathtaking beauty of countryside while traveling through Chunnel train.
