Hello Jenny,

Thanks for your question.

You would have to travel as follows:

- Brive to Limoges Benedictins - Corail Teoz train

- Limoges Benedictins to Poitiers – TER train

- Poitiers to Niort - TGV Atlantique train

- Niort to Paris - TGV Atlantique train

- Paris to London St PancrasEurostar train

Please note that Eurostar can be booked 6 months in advance. The other trains can only be booked 3 months in advance.

In order to book tickets, please visit our website

You would need to feed in the Departure city and the Arrival city along with the travel date and preferred time & the number of passengers (Senior, adults, youth and children), and then click on “search tickets”. Once you do so, you would find the schedules along with the fares. You need to select the fare which is preferable to you and then Add it to Cart. Once added, you need to mention the names of the passengers to make the payment on the next page.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for this advice, Aamir.If we were to start the journey from Le Bugue instead of Brive, would that be possible, please.

kind regards



Sorry, me again. Niort to Paris, that is Paris Gare de Montpasse I believe. How do we get from there to Gare du Nord to pick up the Eurostar , please ?

Best wishes

Hello Jenny,

Thanks for your reply.

There are no direct trains from Le Bugue to Niort.

You would have to break your journey as follows:

-Le Bugue to Bordeaux via Le Buisson Or Perigueux - TER train

-Bordeaux to Saintes – TER train

-Saintes to Niort – TER train

Please note that from one station is Paris to another the best way to travel is by local metro provided you have minimum luggage.

Hope this helps.
