We will be traveling from Paris to Bayeux. Is it best to purchase the rail tickets beforehand or can we go to the train station and get a ticket to go that day. It will be Sunday when we plan to go to Bayeux and then return to Paris on Tuesday. Any help will be appreciated.
You won't have any trouble getting a seat if you buy your tickets just before departure. However, booking in advance (up to three months allowed) at tgv-europe.com can get you a discount fare. To keep the site in English without being bumped to the US Rail Europe site, choose Great Britain as your country of residence and don't allow yourself to be diverted to the UK Rail Europe site. Choose France as your ticket collection country.
