Eurostar trains changed the way people travel through the UK and Europe, linking Brussels, London, and Paris by rail in record times. Here are a few ways to make the most of the line while touring some of western Europe’s top cities.
Paris Tours from London by Eurostar
Hop aboard your Eurostar train at London’s historic St. Pancras station and travel to France in a little over two hours. Explore Paris in a single day or make a weekend of it, strolling along the Champs-Elysees and admiring endless masterpieces in the Louvre Museum. There are plenty of ways to make your rail ticket go further, too. Combine your train ticket with a Seine River cruise, a Champagne lunch on the Eiffel Tower, or perhaps an open-top bus tour to make the most of your time in the City of Lights.
London Tours from Paris by Eurostar
Starting out from Paris’ Gare du Nord, the historic streets and famous landmarks of London are within easy reach via Eurostar. Take the train directly into the heart of London, then explore attractions such as Buckingham Palace and the Tower of London in style with a Thames River cruise or open-top bus tour.
Brussels Tours from London by Eurostar
With fine beer, delicious chocolate, and beautiful architecture to enjoy, Brussels is a wonderful destination to visit—and it’s only around 2.5 hours away from London aboard a Eurostar, which zips to Brussels through Lille. On arrival into Brussels-South railway station, take a hop-on hop-off bus tour to must-see sights such as the European Parliament buildings, the Manneken Pis statue, or the Royal Palace of Brussels. Admire the city’s beautiful Art Nouveau architecture and explore its historic squares—all on a day trip from London.
