Coming by car

The easiest way to get to Inxent is to use the shuttle from Folkestone to Calais.  Total driving time from London is 3 to 4 hours.  Ferries can be cheaper but are slower.  Directions from the shuttle are at the bottom of this page

Coming by train

The nearest station is at Etaples, 10 km away, but connections are poor.  If you take the Eurostar from St. Pancras to Calais Frethun I will come and pick you up.

Coming by coach

Eurolines have a service from London Victoria to Calais.  Again, I will come and pick you up
