Travelling to Rouen
Rouen is located 135kms northwest of Paris and can be reached from the capital
by means of the A13, Paris Porte de Saint Cloud highway, in approximately 1 hour,
30 minutes. If you are driving from the UK, you have the choice of either ferry
services or the Channel Tunnel train services to France, after which you can continue
onwards with your vehicle. It is best to make bookings, particularly at peak times.
The efficient and well-priced European train network connects most continental
centres with France via Paris. From Paris' Gare St-Lazare, trains leave for
Rouen about once hourly; the trip takes just over an hour. Rouen's train station
is located on rue Jeanne d'Arc. Arriving by train from the UK will involve making
use of the Channel Tunnel.
European bus and coach services are comprehensive and cost-effective, if not
the most comfortable means of travelling. It is possible to reach Rouen by bus
from most other parts of Europe, although this may involve a number of changes.
Paris' airports, Charles de Gaulle and Orly, receive flights from most international
cities. From either of these, connecting flights can be caught to Rouen Airport,
or visitors can continue their journey by means of road or rail. Rouen Airport
lies about 18kms from the city centre. For transport into town, taxis are plentiful
and reasonably priced.
Normandy can easily be reached by ferry from Britain, and you have the choice
of various companies and several ports of arrival, namely Dieppe, Caen and Cherbourg.
