Escape for a few days to the British capital, or to the English coast! We have some great ideas for you.

You can also visit the Channel Islands, notably the Island of Jersey. Depending on your destination, the France/England connections are provided mainly by: Britanny Ferries, P&0 Ferriers, MyFerryLink, Condor Ferries, DFDS Seaways, and more.
The trip is easy. Just park your car in the Saint-Vincent underground car park in Saint-Malo (you can reserve your parking place in advance here), then take a 10 minute walk to the Maritime Station and the dock for your ferry. Our suggestion for finding the best price for your crossing: visit www.directferries.co.uk, a site that compares and negotiates the best rates for your seat with all of the ferry companies!
If you want to visit London, you can go to Portsmouth or Poole, since these two cities are close to the capital.
From Paris, you can be in the middle of London in just 2 hours and 20 minutes with Eurostar! Park your car safely in the Rivoli Pont-Neuf car park, then go to the Châtelet-les-Halles station of the RER B, which is only 1 stop to the Gare du Nord! Make sure you arrive at least 45 minutes ahead of time for the identity check. Our suggestion for finding the best price to go by Eurostar: reserve your ticket 3 months in advance (tickets starting at €39 from Paris).
For quite some time now, travelers have also been able to visit London via Eurostar from Marseille and Lyon! In only a few hours, you can discover a whole new world, and fully immerse yourself in British culture! Before your trip, park in the Marseille Saint-Charles train station car park, or in the Lyon Part-Dieu car park. For the best schedule and prices for your trip: reserve your ticket in advance (starting at €60 from Marseille Saint-Charles and €54 from Lyon Part-Dieu).
