to Paris, Brussels, Lille, Calais, Avignon and Disneyland Paris
The Channel Tunnel (known as the "Chunnel) officially
opened in 1994, linking Britain to the continent.
Eurostar is a modern, sleek, fast train that provides
daily service from London to Paris, Brussels, Lille, Calais, Avignon,
and DisneyLand Paris.
London to Paris
The entire journey from the center of London
to the heart of Paris is under three hours (2 hours 15 minutes).
The train reaches speeds of 186
mph, although the ride is so smooth, you hardly feel as if you're
moving at all.

Three Classes of Service
Eurostar offers three classes of service:
- Business Premie
- Standard Premier
Trains leave from St Pancras International in central London and Ashford in Kent*
(the last stop before going under the tunnel), with stops along
the way at Calais and Lille, to its final destination in Paris at
Gare du Nord.
*There are now two Kent stations (Ebbsfleet International and Ashford International) though not all trains stop at all stations.
NOTE: Be prepared to wait a while for a taxi once
you get out of Gare du Nord station in Paris. During our last visit,
there were no shortage of taxis when we arrived just hundreds
of people, waiting in long lines, in total chaos. It was 2:30pm
on a Monday in June and we waited for about an hour.
