London to Avignon Thru Eurostar Trains to Start!

Jump to last reply

And about time that Eurostar (a k a Chunnel Trains to Americans) extended their reach beyond Paris and Brussels (and sporadic ones to EuroDisney and the French Alps) - nwo I read that direct London to Avignon trains will soon be a realtiy - negating the current change of trains in either Lille or Paris.

and why not thru Chunnel trains London to Amsterdam or Cologne/Frankfurt?

and whatever happened to the ambitious plans to have Birmingham and Manchester direct Eurostar trains to Paris or Brussels (or beyond - even overnight Eurostar trains like they currently have to the French Alps from London.

Well those train sets designed for Manchester/Brimingham to London or Paris service were scrapped long ago - for years sitting forelorney at North Pole depot near London Paddington and presumably now sold - I think running on some TGV lines in France, meme!

I have no real data on when Eurostar service direct London to Avignon will commence - just saw it on RailEurope UK web site as a banner - anyone know more details. Thanks.
