London to Bayeux

I've seen several ways to travel from London to Bayeux: Flying, Ferry or Rail. Prefer rail. What is best and cheapest?

The only method that's all rail is the reserved Eurostar train from London to Paris Gare du Nord and then catch an unreserved train from Paris Gare St. Lazare to Bayeux. Transfer between train stations by taxi, bus, or metro. Book the Eurostar months ahead for the best ticket prices.

Looking at Rome2Rio for details about the options; none of them look fast or easy, so I don't see a clear "winner." Check prices on the actual websites of the operators (train company, airline etc), as prices aren't always correct on Rome2Rio.

There are also narratives in English all along the tapestry to explain what you are looking at, but I agree reading a book of the history would be an added plus.
Bayeux is a lovely town and we stayed there 3 days.
