It is easy to travel by train from London to Nancy. The preferred route is via Paris, with a choice of departures each day from London. The first leg of the journey is on a high-speed Eurostar train from London to Paris. There’s an easy change of stations in the French capital – just a ten-minute walk from the Gare du Nord to the Gare de l’Est, where you join a French TGV bound for Nancy.
London to Paris
The first part of the journey from London sweeps through Thameside landscapes and rural Kent to reach the Channel Tunnel. Little more than an hour after leaving London you'll already be in northern France, tracking south through Flanders fields towards Paris.
Remember to factor in at least half an hour for Eurostar's airline-style baggage check prior to boarding your train. There is a luggage and body scan and you'll be asked to show your passport. There are no restrictions on taking liquids on board Eurostar trains.
Paris interchange: Paris Nord to Paris Est
It is an easy ten-minute walk from the Gare du Nord to the Gare de l’Est in Paris. Or if you have lots of luggage consider a (very short) taxi ride for around €10. There’s really no point going by Métro.
If you’re on foot, exit the station from the main entrance and turn left onto Rue de Dunkerque. Walk along the Rue de Dunkerque, crossing Rue du Faubourg Saint-Denis and Rue La Fayette, still continuing on Dunkerque. You’ll come to a T-junction where you turn right into Rue d’Alsace. Follow Rue d’Alsace (you’ll now see the platforms of Gare de l’Est below you to your left) to the flight of pedestrian steps which leads down to the side entrance of Gare de l’Est. Beware of the hustlers who often hang around the steps soliciting donations and offering to carry your luggage.
The route above is the quickest, but for step-free access to Gare de l’Est here’s a slightly longer alternative. Leave the main front entrance of the Gare du Nord and walk straight ahead down Boulevard de Denain (which runs down beside the Café Terminus Nord). Follow Denain to Boulevard de Magenta, turning left onto it. Take the third left onto Rue de 8 Mai 1945 and walk along to the front of the Gare de l’Est.
Paris to Nancy-Ville
There are about ten direct TGV trains each day from the Gare de l’Est in Paris to Nancy Ville, taking full advantage of a new high-speed line opened in 2007. Trains regularly reach 320 kph on this route, and the journey from Paris to Nancy usually takes about 95 minutes. Running east from Paris, the railway traverses the Champagne region and crosses the Meuse Valley. The train branches off the high-speed line and then follows a winding rail route up the Moselle Valley towards Nancy.
