While you're there

Angouleme, the french comic-strip capital

Stroll along the ramparts of French city Angoulême, where intricate murals and quirky cartoons brighten building façades. France is a comic-mad country, and Angoulême is the centre of the bande dessinée world, home to the glass-panelled National Comic Strip Centre and exuberant International Comics Festival.

After having a walk along the 4th, 13th and 16th century ramparts, what about discovering the St Peter’s cathedral. Dating back to the 12th century, the building was modified several times. But this one stays a great example of the regional romanesque architecture and sculpture.

If you are fond of religious architecture, you will have a lot to visit and you may be spoiled for choice, between remains of abbeys such as the St Ausonne ruins, or other churches such as the St André’s one. In a totally different style, wander around the covered market. Its architecture of glass and iron echoes the Baltard Pavillon near Paris.

You can also admire the Town Hall, keeping some remains of the medieval castle built here before. Its crenellated towers remind of a fortress. Around Angoulême, nature lovers will be happy to find the Charente valley, which provides very pleasant footpathes and landscapes.

  • "TGV to PARIS"    
    Train was exactly on time, very smooth and quiet. It was a great experience travelling at 300km/h. It was an easy way to get to Paris and then on to London. Exterior of train needed cleaning.

    A last minute plan, but a very reasonable price and I upgraded to 1st class, which I highly recommend - so cool with really comfortable seats - loved it.

  • "efficient and convenient"

  • "French trains"    
    On time departure, spacious, comfortable and fast.  
  • "The only way to go"    
    This fast efficient travel to Angouleme was further enhanced by new carriage we were in with its more comfortable seats and abundant luggage space.  
  • "Pretty Nice Way to Travel"    
    It was a nice trip, left and arrived on time and our reservation was honored. A couple of suggestions that will make travel a bit easier for foreigners that are not that familiar with the French system. First, get rid of that composting system. It does not seem to serve any useful purpose, except for the composting machine vendors. Also, improve your web sight. It is not very intuitive and gave apparently incorrect instructions. We made and paid on line and got an email that said that we would be sent a message confirming our ticket within two days. It never arrived so we got nervous about whether we had been scammed and had to go to the station to pick up the tickets. Finally, it would be good to make the voiture numbers more evident, they are hard to find and see.  
  • "Quality travel"    
    This was our first leg on a 10 day rail tour. Everything was well organised .the bar staff efficient and friendly  
  • "Montparnasse-Anaouleme"    
    We had an excellent trip on eurorail. The big black board with platform details was very informative and easy to follow. The train was very comfortable and we enjoyed the on board coffee.  
  • "Angouleme"    
    We have to wait in Paris CDG 4 hours after flight arrival to train departure. That was the only negative part.  
  • "5 go to paris"    
    5very excited ladies on a trip today paris,we were very I pressed from start to finish with the booking web page, to the info it gave us, to printing off the tickets at home and the price was excellent. I would always use this method to get around France land would recommend it to friends.! Thank you for making our trip comfortable.  
  • "Incredibly long journey"    
    Train was held for approx 30 mins at each station- increasing the journey time for another hour, was very glad to get off- tickets were cheap, but glad I didn't pay any more for this.  
  • "A comfortable trip"    
    I could really recomend this way of travelling. Nice and comfortable and friendly staff. There is really nothing to complain about. Kent/Sweden
