Convenience & Comfort: Travel by Eurostar

For those of you who prefer to keep your feet on the ground, you can travel via Eurostar on selected tours and river cruises in Europe, such as Paris, Bruges, the Rhine Valley and many more. Travelling by train is the ideal solution if you don’t like flying, cannot fly for medical reasons or simply want fewer restrictions on luggage.

For many departures we can arrange your train travel from a regional station in the UK, so you don’t have to book your journey to London St Pancras and home again independently. What’s more, on most routes you can upgrade to Standard Premier Class on the Eurostar (and onward TGV, where applicable). We’ll even arrange an upgrade to First Class on your regional train journey if you’d like to travel in comfort. 

Keep reading for information on local departures and upgrades. If you are interested in booking an iconic rail journey such as the Glacier Express in Switzerland, or the Rocky Mountaineer in Canada, take a look at our rail journeys page. 

We also have a helpful blog of 5 Great Reasons to Travel by Eurostar to give some further information about the high-speed train, and St Pancras station itself.


Convenient local departures

Why not enjoy a convenient departure from a station close to home? Booking your own cross-country train transport can be tricky when considering station changes and onward train times, so here at Riviera Travel our Eurostar team work hard finding your preferred regional departure to add to your booking.

We offer departures from stations such as Newcastle, Leeds, Manchester, Birmingham, Derby, Southampton, Bristol, Lancaster and many more. We endeavour to provide connections from as many stations as possible across the country, so wherever you live you’ll be sure to find a local departure to suit you. For a full list of stations, please click here. 

It’s easy to book a local departure; simply select the station you'd like to depart from when making your booking online. If your preferred station is not available to select from the dropdown menu in the checkout, get in touch with us and we can request a station for you.

Enjoy a relaxed journey in the spacious and quiet First Class coach of your regional train. We can add a First Class upgrade to your booking at any time before departure, so don’t hesitate to get in touch.


Eurostar upgrades

In order to enjoy your Eurostar experience to the full, you may upgrade to Standard Premier Class on the Eurostar (and onward TGV, where applicable). You’ll get a seat in the spacious Standard Premier coach with a complimentary light meal offered from a selection of sweet and savoury cold snacks, and a drink appropriate to the time of day, served at your seat while you relax in the comfort of Standard Premier Class. Upgrades can easily be added to your booking any time before the final balance has been paid so please call us to enquire further.
