“Architecturally interesting.”
Reviewed 27 November 2013

The station is somewhat like a cathedral, large and spacious but lacking in activity except when a train arrives. Not worth a visit on it's own, but if you arrive by train OK. Limoge Old town is quite interesting and you have the benefit of many china ware shops to visit. Very pleasant in the summer sun for a stroll and a walk by the river.

“Beautiful Exterior shqme the ticket ,machines dont work”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

This has a beautiful art moderne exterior and it is worth a trip for this alone.Unfortunately the ticket machines dont work properly.They wont translate to english.I found a kind soul to help me but alas the machine refused to recognise my card,so i had to join the queue in the ticket office where a helpful lady printed off my tickets.

“One of the most graceful places in Limoges.”
Reviewed 7 September 2013

I love its location and I love its architecture. No wonder why it's one of the most beautiful train station in Europe from the inside and outside. But beware of the elevators due to their state! I once got stuck inside an elevator and the staff had to call firefighters to rescue me (really bad luck that time). Hope there will be some maintenance soon.
