Trains to / from Paris

 

If you are traveling to Paris from within continental Europe or from the U.K., traveling to Paris by train can be a great alternative to flying.

 

Eurostar train to Paris

Europe counts more and more High-Speed trains (called TGV in France) that can cut rail travel time down by half. The Eurostar train connects London to Paris via the channel tunnel, or "chunnel", making for a truly unforgettable experience. The Eurostar bullet train connects London St. Pancras station to Paris Gare du Nord in only 2 hours and 15 minutes
