Summer vacationers will be able to get from London to Avignon in southern France in a little more than six hours on a new weekly express route run by the high-speed Eurostar train. It will operate once a week in each direction on Saturdays only, between July 20 and Sept. 7, via the Channel Tunnel with one stop, at Ashford in Kent. Advance purchase round-trip fares start at $188....
