TRAVEL

The best ways to get there is to fly or via the TGV from Paris. It is a 12 hour scenic drive from London. If you are booking flights, the train or a ferry, we would recommend doing so sooner, if you can, as the prices will go up as the date is on a bank holiday in summer.

HIRE CARS

If you are not driving down we would recommend getting a car. All the airports and train stations have hire car services on site. We would recommend using comparison sites or booking through your flight provider.
