London city guide

London, the capital city of England

London, the capital city of England, stands as one the world’s most important cities and tourist destinations in the world. The city is crossed by the Thames River. With more than 7 million inhabitants, an extensive underground system, residents from the four corners of the globe speaking a total of over 300 languages and representing all the world’s religions, London is a truly diverse city and a global metropolis. This fascinating cultural melting pot is something which Londoners take pride in. London buzzes night and day with an unforgettable energy, and each area of the city has its own distinct atmosphere. With several iconic landmarks dispersed in all parts of the city, the best way is to start from the centre. Travellers can easily reach continental Europe thanks to the Eurostar. London to Paris takes just 2h15.


London’s heart known as the City of London or simply the City is its commercial and financial heart. Top financial institutions have their headquarters there. The centre of London is an area which also has a dense concentration of landmarks, theatres, museums, nightspots and famous shopping areas like Covent Garden, Carnaby Street and Oxford Street. Starting out from there, you will discover the famous Big Ben Tower, the Westminster Abbey, the London Eye, the Tower Bridge and other wonders which are short distance from each other.

When in the City, visit the Tower of London. Its foundation was laid in 1078 when William the Conqueror ordered the White Tower to be built. This was done to protect London from invaders and the Normans from the people of the City of London. The other main attraction within the City is the St Paul’s Cathedral, built between 1675 and 1710.

  • "Very good experience"    
    It was our first time travelling from London to Paris at Eurostar. It was really very good, the seats are comfortable, the train was clean and everything gone all right. Certainly we'll repeat the experience! Luciene Ardente / Rio de Janeiro / Brazil  
  • "Comfortable Service"    
    Comfortable seat  
  • "ticket"    
    I have trevelled from paris to london on 14th jan 2014 ,the price of the ticket is veryyyyy high ,it was not acoording to the facilities .  
  • "peaceful journey"    
    comfortable, fast and safe  
  • "Convenient"    
    It is convenient because you travel during the night, you can sleep and arrive in your destination and enjoy the day.  
  • "Hurry trip "    
    It is so hard to find eurostar station in paris ,when we tried to ask the staff ,it was complicated too! As most of staff are not able to speak english …… Hopefully we get on the train in time ……  
  • "from London to Paris in 2 hour"    
    I enjoyed very much the experience of moving fast and convenient from the culture and language of central London to the French language and culture in the center of Paris.. This is not my first travel from London to Paris and back, but the first time on the express train, and I would definitely recommend this experience.  
  • "Our Trip"    
    Was really great; it was good to see the French country side and we were amazed at seeing how many little villages there were. The collection of tickets at Paris Nord was easy and the counter staff were extremely helpful and friendly; just a bit difficult finding where to go at first - more signs are needed.  
  • "Rail vs Air"    
    It is unfortunate that 'rail' is currently more expensive than 'air' because the only thing that 'air' has going for it is speed! In terms of convenience, personal space, stress and the location of transport hubs, 'rail' wins hands-down. This journey made good sense for us and I would recommend it to those looking to get an extra day on the slopes and who are not over-fussed with sleeping in relatively cramped cabins.  
  • "EUROSTAR"    
    Super trip!  
  • "December trip"    
    Great service  
  • "paris to london"    
    very good  
  • "trip was good"    
    Trip was comfortable and am satisfied with the experience.  
  • "Good comfort"    
    Awesome trip  
  • "Exceptional Holiday"    
    We had a wonderfull holiday and the train trip was the highlight of our holiday. The service was excelent and the staff were great. Thank you for making it special.
