TRAVELLING BY RAIL

LONDON TO VALENCIA

It's quite possible to travel from the United Kingdom to JŠvea / Xŗbia by train - though not quite all the way as our town doesn't have a rail link but certainly to within a short coach trip of our lovely resort. The excellent resource of www.seat61.com describes the recommended route in detail which uses the Eurostar connection between London and Paris before transferring to the Trenhotel service to Barcelona. From the Catalan capital, there is an option of the cheaper regional express to Valencia or the faster, but more expensive, Euromed service. From the city of Valencia, there is a reguler coach service that passes through JŠvea / Xŗbia.
