Traveling from London to Bayeux, France

The reference library of a city near you may have the Thomas Cook European Timetable. Table 2170 shows that Brittany Ferries sail from Portsmouth Harbour at 2230 to Ouistreham at 0615. Trains leave London Waterloo at 1900 and reach Portsmouth Harbour at 2033. A bus meets the boat at Ouistreham and takes 45 minutes to Caen station, whence frequent trains take 17 minutes to Bayeux. Or you can ask on board whether there is a bus direct from the boat to Bayeaux.

Or you can fly from London Stansted to Caen on Buzz airlines; 3 flights a week until the end of March, one flight a day after that.

Last October we flew from London Stansted to Caen - it was very easy. Once in Caen, there's a bus into the center of town (fare, 1 Euro). You can rent a car in Caen (suggest AutoEurope) or take a train to other destinations.

I don't think flights will operate between Stanstead & Caen from April onwards due to the takeover of Buzz by Ryanair.
