    Hi Melinda,

    A connection from London to Caen would take about 5.5 to 6.5 hours and involves changing trains once in Paris along the way. First, you would take the Eurostar train from London straight to Paris. The Eurostar trains arrive into the Nord station in Paris. From there, you would commute to the St. Lazare station, where trains to Caen depart from. To commute from Nord to St. Lazare, you would take line E of the RER. Specifically, the RER trains will depart from the Magenta station, which is adjacent to the Nord station. The ride on line E of the RER from Magenta to St. Lazare would only take about 5 minutes. You would pay to board the RER locally upon arrival.

    You would purchase tickets for your trains from London to Caen by clicking on 'Find Fares & Schedules' on the homepage of our website, www.raileurope.com. To arrange for a connection time of your choosing in Paris, you would piece together the connection by doing a separate search for each segment (i.e. one search for trains from London to Paris and then another search for connecting trains from Paris to Caen).

    The Eurostar from London to Paris is unique from other trains in that it can generally be booked 6 to 9 months in advance of a departure, while trains from Paris to Caen can only be booked within 90 days of an intended date of departure.
