There are as many reasons to love London as there are people in the city, and one of the most exciting reasons is that London is just over two hours away from another incredible city – Paris.
Start your journey at London St Pancras International, one of the world’s most beautiful train stations. Maybe you’ll do a little last-minute shopping in the station’s boutiques or while away some time before your departure at Europe’s longest champagne bar, with a perfect view of the Eurostar trains and the romantic sculpture at the heart of The Meeting Place.
Once you’re on board, you can grab a snack at the bar buffet or lounge in Business Premier class with a gourmet meal designed by Michelin-starred chef Raymond Blanc. Either way, you’ll get to Paris in just 2 hours 15 minutes, ready to explore yet another dynamic, charming and utterly bewitching city before you head home to London in time for dinner. Très simple.
Your Eurostar story is waiting.
