Eurostar to Paris

Eurostar Paris services run frequently every day, so you can leave in the morning and come back the same day if you want to.
When you get there
The lift to the top of the Eiffel Tower, and the uncluttered view as the whole city spreads out to meet you, is still one of the great moments of travel.
Along with must-see sights like the Musée du Louvre, home of the Mona Lisa, the surrealist paintings of the Pompidou Centre, and the extraordinary Sacré Coeur cathedral in the bohemian Montmartre quarter, seek out some of the city's more unusual nooks and crannies.
Les Catacombes, for instance, is a macabre underground labyrinth of tunnels lined with the bones of 6 million people. Pack a torch and bring a friend.
The Paris Metro is quick and easy, and has stations everywhere. The bus network is equally user-friendly, and taxis are plentiful too. Be smart and buy a Metro card from London or Ashford International, so that you're ready to start exploring as soon as you arrive.

When you get to Lille

Take a dip into Lille's art scene at La Piscine, a former public baths turned art gallery, where sculptures are on show by a partly-filled swimming pool.
Lille is a great city to walk around, though it's worth taking a peek at the user-friendly metro too, to see the underground art. Look out for impressive pieces at Lille Europe and Beaux-Arts stations.

Step off the train and smell the lavender - Eurostar to Provence
During the summer months take the Eurostar to Avignon with the weekly direct service, and you can arrive in Provence in just over 7 hours - without even changing trains. Trains leave on a Saturday and run from July to September.
Outside of the summer, you can take the Eurostar to either Lille or Paris and then take a high speed TGV on to Avignon. Journeys take between 6 hours 15 minutes and 6 hours 45 minutes. Times from Ashford are around 50 minutes shorter.
When you get there
You'll arrive in the fabled walled city of Avignon after a journey that takes in the impossibly atmospheric landscape of a Van Gogh canvas: purple lavender fields, olive groves and bent-headed cypresses.
This historic, sun-baked city is home to a UNESCO World Heritage listed site in the Palais des Papes, once home to the popes, and, of course the remains of the bridge made famous in the song: "Sur le pont d'Avignon...".
Wander the city's winding medieval streets, browse the city's boutiques and stop for a drink or a plate of couscous in one of the relaxed bars and restaurants (many of which have a strong North African influence) around the central Place de l'Horloge.
Take buses, try the free river shuttle across the Rhône to Bathelasse Island, or just enjoy wandering around the cobbled streets of the old town on foot.
