We want to go from Dover, UK to Bayeux, France. The plan was to take the ferry from Dover to Calais, train from Calais to Caen, then rent a car for 3 days to go to Bayeux. Return car in Caen and take the train to Paris. We have taken the ferry to Calais but it was in 2011. Now it looks like you cannot take the ferry without a car. The alternative is to take the train from Dover to London and then on to Paris and Caen. We will be staying in Paris for 5 nights and I guess it doesn't matter if Bayeux or Paris comes first. After Paris we are going to Brussels.
I appreciate any ideas. Thank you!
