While you're there

Angouleme, the french comic-strip capital

Stroll along the ramparts of French city Angoulême, where intricate murals and quirky cartoons brighten building façades. France is a comic-mad country, and Angoulême is the centre of the bande dessinée world, home to the glass-panelled National Comic Strip Centre and exuberant International Comics Festival.

After having a walk along the 4th, 13th and 16th century ramparts, what about discovering the St Peter’s cathedral. Dating back to the 12th century, the building was modified several times. But this one stays a great example of the regional romanesque architecture and sculpture.

If you are fond of religious architecture, you will have a lot to visit and you may be spoiled for choice, between remains of abbeys such as the St Ausonne ruins, or other churches such as the St André’s one. In a totally different style, wander around the covered market. Its architecture of glass and iron echoes the Baltard Pavillon near Paris.

You can also admire the Town Hall, keeping some remains of the medieval castle built here before. Its crenellated towers remind of a fortress. Around Angoulême, nature lovers will be happy to find the Charente valley, which provides very pleasant footpathes and landscapes.

  • "Angouleme"    
    We have to wait in Paris CDG 4 hours after flight arrival to train departure. That was the only negative part.  
  • "5 go to paris"    
    5very excited ladies on a trip today paris,we were very I pressed from start to finish with the booking web page, to the info it gave us, to printing off the tickets at home and the price was excellent. I would always use this method to get around France land would recommend it to friends.! Thank you for making our trip comfortable.  
  • "Incredibly long journey"    
    Train was held for approx 30 mins at each station- increasing the journey time for another hour, was very glad to get off- tickets were cheap, but glad I didn't pay any more for this.  
  • "A comfortable trip"    
    I could really recomend this way of travelling. Nice and comfortable and friendly staff. There is really nothing to complain about. Kent/Sweden  
  • "Poorly marked coaches"    
    The only major downside was that the coaches are not at all clearly marked so I jumped into the wrong coach and then was unable to change so I spent my time hopping between seats in second class.  
  • "Excellent service"    
    Very good way to travel: train left on time, and was clean and comfortable. I also felt the price was very reasonable and compared well with UK prices for rail travel.  
  • "Late arrival"    
    Unexpected but train 40 mins. late arrival. Very surprised  
  • "Paris to Avignon - TGV"    
    So quick - so easy - very comfortable. Was worried about getting from subway with bags to Gare Lyon - but no trouble at all. Only issue was getting large bags on board train. Value for money would have been improved if we'd booked earlier.  
  • "Angouleme to Paris"    
    What can I say? The train ran on time, was clean, comfortable - and the scenery was great.
