Travelling to Bordeaux
Getting to Bordeaux couldn't be easier, with a host of possibilities on offer.
Many European visitors prefer to travel by car, as the French road system is
user friendly and safe and, at many points in the journey, it offers excellent
scenery en route. Two main highways exit the city to the north: the A10 and
N10; and the N89 travels due east.
Alternatively take the fast TGV trains from the cities of Paris, Marseille
and Nice, which receive international flights at their airports. Bordeaux is
a major rail hub for the southwest of France. The Gare St-Jean (station) is
3kms from the city centre at the end of cours de la Marne. Sixteen trains a
day run to Paris, with regular departures to Biarritz, Bayonne, Nantes, Poitiers,
La Rochelle and Toulouse as well.
If you're travelling by bus, coaches depart from the Halte Routiere (bus terminal)
to places all over the Gironde and into the Dordogne. Bordeaux is a transport
hub for the many smaller seaside towns nearby, with Euroline buses travelling
farther, making it possible to travel non-stop to many major centres in France.
The local airport Bordeaux-Mérignac is 6.5miles west of Bordeaux in
Mérignac. A shuttle bus connects the airport with the train station and
departs every 30 minutes from 06:00 to 22:30. The airport is served by cities
as far away as New York.
