"From London to Paris"

  Jonathan g. 
The train ride from London St Pancras to Paris Gare du Nord was a smooth ride. The train took off on time and even arrived slightly ahead of time in Paris that was expected. The seats were comfortable and staff were very friendly. On my way, back from Paris, the staff showed unlimited concern to an elderly passenger who was sitting around me. Very impressed.  

"good"

  Chioma Chidinma o.  16/04/2014
great...it's perfect to travel by train to london from bruxelles!!!  

"Paris to London"

  Leslie a.  10/04/2014
Fast, courteous service. Will use again  

"Trip from Paris to London"

  Xuan Tian s.  11/12/2013
Booking a Eurostar train from Paris Gare Du Nord to London St Pancras was easy and fast. However, we were unable to choose our seats and we got a back facing seat. It was quite uncomfortable and we didn't like siting back facing. It would be good if Rail Europe allow choosing of seats on the website.  

"Excellent Experience"

  Ai Luan p.  10/12/2013
Very convenience and value for money for our Paris-London trip.  

"Eurostar - Paris to London"

  Debra p.  06/12/2013
On time, comfortable - excellent. With RailEurope we paid in NZ dollars before our trip assisting with our budget and found that the price we paid was by far the least expensive fare available.  

"confusing"

  Lynda Marie w.  22/11/2013
T he train we got on at Lille was two trains joined together which made it very confusing when trying to find the coach we were in nearly missed the train trying to find the right coach. and when we arrived in Paris the signs for the underground trains are really poor we expected better from such a large city. Arriving back at St Pancras in London the difference is startling even if you are a visitor and don,t know much of the language you would find where you are going much easier.  

"Excellent Service"

  Tausif k.  18/11/2013
Me and my family travelled to on Train from paris to London and Rome to Venice. Bought the tickets on line from Pakistan, every thing was very convenient and excellent service.  

"London to Edinburgh"

  Wayne s.  13/11/2013
Outstanding comfort and service. Easy to get luggage stored and collected on arrival. Good food and beverage service. Access to wifi is really handy. On the expensive side but I would definitely consider this as an alternative to flying in the future.  

"A great way to travel to Franc"

  Susan v.  29/10/2013
We recently travelled as a family from London to Paris via the Eurostar. The train left London St-Pancras station on time and arrived into Paris' Gare du Nord on time. The train was smooth, clean and quiet and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Railway staff at St-Pancras assisted passengers with their luggage when certain luggage areas filled up. The food at the on board restaurant car was perfectly adequate and there was a reasonable variety. We wouldn't hesitate to travel on board the Eurostar from London to Paris again.  

"Convenience"

  Colin m.  29/10/2013
The best way to travel from Paris to London and visa versa. It would be great if you could get a forward facing seat when you make an early booking. We do not like travelling backwards.  

"First London to Paris trip"

  Wei Xiong c.  22/10/2013
Our first Eurostar travel from London to Paris. Very convenient, fast and you get to enjoy some view of the country side. Would like to try out a quieter cabin next time.

It was just excellent  

"Season Traveller"

  Thainai d.  14/10/2013
