The route with the biggest choice of departures each day is that via Paris, where a change of stations is required from Gare du Nord to Montparnasse. But if you do not like the idea of changing stations in Paris, there are alternative routes from London to Bordeaux via either Lille or Marne la Vallee-Chessy – these options may take a little longer but you would avoid the cross-city transfer in Paris.
