Why travel by train to Mont-Saint-Michel?

Travelling by train is a great way to understand why Mont-Saint-Michel is such a special place. The views available as trains approach the island are exceptional, giving a hint of the architecture and scenery on offer as visitors cross the causeway to the island. Aside from that, trains offer a convenient, quick way to access Mont-Saint-Michel for those staying in major cities like Rennes and connections from Paris are reliable and relatively fast. This makes it fairly easy for UK travellers to head straight from London or to spend some time shopping and relaxing in the French capital, before completing the journey to Brittany.

Before you travel to Mont-Saint-Michel by train - good to know!

Travellers will need to remember that trains don't travel directly to Mont-Saint-Michel. Instead, they will need to switch to shuttle buses or walk the remaining distance to the island. Walking along the causeway can be a rewarding experience and is recommended for active visitors. The island itself is crowned by a magnificent Abbey, which rises 155 metres from the ocean, presenting an incredible vista. Tours of the Abbey are a must, including the "Grand Staircase", serene courtyards and the Knights Hall. Tracing the rugged fortifications is also recommended, as is heading to Grand Rue - the only street in town. The Archéoscope on Grand Rue offers a great introduction to the development and story of the island, and may be the best place to start.
