England and France in two weeks

Hi, I'm trying to plan a trip for my niece and mom, and niece has her heart set on London and Paris. Since I've been to both cities several times, I'm trying to squeeze in a few side trips too. Does the following itinerary make any sense? We arrive May 16, depart May 30.

Days 1-5: London (with obligatory day trip to Cambridgeshire to visit family friend)
Day 6: Travel by train to York, stay overnight
Day 7: Travel by train from York to Avignon, France (via London and Paris)
Days 8-10: Avignon (day trip to Arles or Aix-en-Provence...or is it too early for lavender?)
Day 11: Travel by train from Avignon to Paris
Days 11-14: Paris (with day trip to Versailles)
Day 15: Depart Paris for home

The weak spot may be getting from York to Avignon -- is it feasible by train? I think It'd be 2.5 hours back to London, then 2.5 from London to Paris, then another 2.5 hours from Paris to Avignon...not counting stopovers, etc. And after all that, we'd only get 3 full days in Avignon. But trying to squeeze in as much as possible, and driving is not an option. If this is not realistic, then I'll scrap York and maybe do a day trip to Bath or Oxford.

Grateful for thoughts!!
