Travelling By Car (And Ferry)
For those driving from the Eurotunnel you can expect to be in Dordogne within 9 hours or so. There are a choice of routes - via Paris or via Rouen tend to be the most popular, depending on where you want to visit. The same applies to those arriving in France via the channel ferries (DFDS and Brittany offer the widest range of times and vessels). There is also an overnight ferry service from Portsmouth and Plymouth to Santander and Bilbao. Perigueux is around six hours drive from there.
Planes and Trains
Ryanair, Easyjet, Jet2 and British Airways offer flights to Bordeaux, Limoges, Bergerac, Toulouse and Brive (Vallee de la Dordogne) from departure points across the UK and Ireland. KLM British Airways and Air France also offer options from mainland Europe.
Eurostar trains travel daily from London to Paris where there are a range of connecting flights to the airports mentioned above and also some options to travel onwards by train. The high-speed TGV drops you in Bordeaux in an impressive two hours (you could stop off in Saint Emilion for lunch..) or Brive La Gaillarde in around five hours.
