By Train from London (United Kingdom) to Angers (France) - Option 1: via Paris, transferring between the Gare Du Nord and Gare Montparnasse

Journey Summary

Depart London (United Kingdom)

London St Pancras International

Arrive Angers (France)

Angers-Saint Laud
Journey Time
from 4hr 45min* (via Paris)

Monday = 6 x connections
Tues -Thurs = 5 x connections
Friday = 8 x connections
Saturday = 5 x connections
Sunday = 4 x connections

*The journey times of less than  5hrs mins all allow less than 1hr 15mins to make the transfer in Paris from the Gare Du Nord to the Gare Montparnasse.

So targeting the journey options with an end-to-end time of longer of more than 5hrs can be a good idea.

In the rare event of the Eurostar arriving in Paris 20 - 40 minutes late, making those fastest connections into the TGV on to Angers will become a race against time!

An option is to split the booking into London to Paris and Paris to Angers journeys so that you can set a connecting time that suits you – though doing so will be more expensive.
See the 'Ticket Information' below.

Or an option is to target the alternative journey options, which involve changing trains in Lille.

The big tick in the box for changing trains in Lille is the avoidance of the awkward transfer across Paris.

Though there are also three ticks in the box for choosing this routing via Paris:

(1) More departures to choose from

(2) Tends to be cheaper

(3) The end-to-end journey time is quicker
