Calais, have you ever take a train… under the sea?
You will find Calais in the French department Pas de Calais between the Channel and the North Sea. Only 38 kilometres away from the English coasts, Calais is world-known thanks to the Channel Tunnel and of course its famous lace.
Start your discovery of Calais by climbing up to the top of the lighthouse to appreciate a magnificent view onto sea, countryside and town.
Take a walk in the 16th century Citadel of which two Doors are listed Historical Monuments. Be amazed by the "Red Fort" built on stilts in the 17th century and the "Nieulay Fort" restored from 1989. Don’t miss the 38 meters high "Tour du Guet" from the 13th century, one of the oldest monuments of Calais, located nearby the famous "Place d’Armes".
Take time to see the lovely Notre-Dame church in its specific Tudor style and the most famous sculpture by Rodin: "Les Bourgeois de Calais".
Trains are a convenient way of reaching many towns and cities throughout Europe. The majority of cities in Europe have a minimum of one train station, while larger, more populated cities have two or more stations. Train stations, in general, are located in the heart of the city.

Timely, Confortable, inexpensive for the superior class

Took the very short trip to Calais to pick up our car. It was smooth, on time and efficient. A great way to travel
- "Stuttgart to Regensburg Trip" Ivan w. 24/04/2015
There was no indication anywhere as to where to go once we reached Stuttgart from Paris. Language was a problem since we don't speak German or French. Contradicting instructions were given by the conductors as to where to connect to the next train to Regensburg since there was no direct train from Stuttgart to Regensburg. Other than that, the ride itself, once we got on the train, was okay.
- "Frethun to Paris" Paul b. 12/11/2014
A convenient and quick service to Paris, marred only by duplicate booking of several seats in my 1st Class compartment. There were however many empty seats for me to occupy so it was not too disruptive.
- "excellent way to travel" Mary-ann k. 27/09/2014
Very comfortable trip across to France from London. The carriages were very clean and easy to access. Luggage storage was easy with storage for the larger bags at the front of our carriage, then a double rack system above our seats for backpacks and smaller hand luggage. We were a group of four so had a central table which was great to share food or play cards, etc. Good sound system to let us know when our station, Calais-Frethun had arrived.
- "on time." Roelof h. 13/08/2014
To londen train was on time. There was no room to store the buggy. Return train late because problems in Paris. Normal time at Calais. The ride was okay.
- "Great train ride" Robin m. 05/08/2014
Train travel in Europe, comfortable, easy, value for money
- "Travelling on rail europe" Michelle p. 13/07/2014
Train was on time and reached the destination on time. Seats were very comfortable. It would have been great if there was an announcement in English to confirm whn u reach the destination.
- "Calais To London." Gideon c. 15/06/2014
Nice ride. The only problem is the lack of more services in the Calais-Frethun station - No restaurant, Not enough restrooms. Not enough benches or seats in the waiting area. Other than that the ride was very nice and we enjoyed it.
- "Calais to Paris" Patricia a. 14/09/2013
When we were dropped off at bus station from the ferry bus we weren't sure how to get a bus to the Railway station in Calais so we taxied. The journey was comfortable and there was a storage area for our bags. We taxied from Paris Nord station to b
- "Calais ville" William o. 01/08/2013
We booked our ticket on-line prior to travelling from Lille to Calais-ville . THe ticket code given on the confirmation did not work in the automatic ticketing machine and apparently this is the situation when booking from some countries (including New Zealand). Also it was not made clear that there are two stations in Lille but fortunately we had allowed some time and were able to walk to the new station about 800mtrs away. Also if you travel to Calais-ville keep in mind that there is no lift or escalator to get you to the exit and the stairs are steep and long especially if you have heavy bags.
- "Comfortable but expensive" Chi Yuen c. 29/07/2013
Comfortable but a bit exepensive !
- "Calais to London" Murray p. 21/05/2013
The train was very quick and easy. The seating was quite crammed in some carriages and empty in others which caused issues for luggage. The Calais TGV station has no food services after 2:00pm which seems a bit odd.
