Travel to the train station Calais Fréthun - Gare Eurostar from Calais city center

France's premier northern ferry port of Calais is often the entry and departure point for visitors to France, but it's more than that. The city has a long history, having been fought over by England and France, and it offers plenty to see and do. From Rodin sculptures to outlandish civic architecture (check out the UNESCO-listed town hall), Calais is a city with surprises for everyone to discover. The train station Calais Fréthun - Gare Eurostar is the city's premier Eurostar terminal, offering connections to Paris and beyond, as well as journeys through the Channel Tunnel to the UK. It's slightly out of town though, so knowing the best route to the station can be very important.

What is the best way to get to the train station Calais Fréthun - Gare Eurostar -

If travelers are short on time and want to find the fastest way to travel to the train station from Calais city center, overground rail links could be the best option. Trains run from Les Fontinettes near the center of town, and run to the train station Calais Fréthun - Gare Eurostar​, taking very little time to make the journey. However, trains are far from the only way to reach Frethun. Local buses offer a cheaper alternative, which may also be more useful for those near the port or the beach. Buses run directly from Calais Ville to Calais Fréthun - Gare Eurostar​, and stop at various locations in the municipal area. They also connect the Eurostar station with the ferry port, which could potentially be useful for travelers who need to transit to mainline rail services. Taxis offer another option, which could be quicker and more convenient in some cases. But taxi rides should take around about the same amount of time as public transport.

How far is it from the city center to the train station Calais Fréthun - Gare Eurostar​?

The train station Calais Fréthun - Gare Eurostar​ is about six miles (nine kilometers) south-west of Calais city center, and eight miles (11 kilometers) south-west of the ferry port. This means that walking isn't an option, but buses, trains, and taxis will be. Travelers can expect trains from Calais Ville or Les Fontinettes to take 9-11 minutes, and they should represent the quickest way to transfer to the train station from Calais city center. However, there are only a couple of stations in the city, and bus stops may be more convenient. In that case, travelers can expect transfer times of 10-15 minutes from the center of town, and 15-20 minutes from the ferry port. Taxi times will vary depending on location and traffic, but will average approximately 15 minutes, making them a good option if time is tight.

How accessible is the train station Calais Fréthun - Gare Eurostar​ for those with limited mobility?

Overground rail operator SNCF undertakes to provide any necessary support for disabled travelers, and accessing trains from Calais Ville shouldn't pose too many difficulties. SITAC Buses are wheelchair accessible, but aren't as spacious as trains, and there will be longer transfer distances upon arrival.
