Getting to Paris from the UK couldn’t be easier with Eurostar (External link) . Speed from St Pancras International to Paris Gare du Nord in just 2 hours 15 minutes from just £29 one way*. And children under four travel free.

After a quick 30-minute check-in you’ll be on your way to Paris in style. The two-bag luggage allowance means you needn’t hold back on the packing, and Eurostar coaches have lots of legroom and space to unwind.

Since all the passport checks are done before you leave the UK, you’ll step straight off the train and into the action. Close to the platform, you’ll find Métro and RER trains to whisk you to Paris’ top museums and galleries – where your Eurostar ticket gets you 2-for-1 entry.

* Based on a return trip. Tickets at this fare are only available for travel (according to your local departure time): between midday and midnight on a Monday; anytime on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday; and between midday and midnight on a Saturday. Subject to availability at the time of booking. A £3 credit card fee may apply.
