At the end of last year Eurostar moved to St Pancras International train station which is situated right in the heart of London.St Pancras is served by no less than six underground lines-Victoria, Northern, Piccadilly, Circle, Hammersmith & City, and the Metropolitan line so as you can see its very easy to get to St Pancras International.Eurostar is a high speed passenger train that runs between London, Paris and Brussels via the Channel Tunnel. It’s run by a consortium of French railways (SNCF), Belgian railways (SNCB) and Eurostar UK Ltd. Eurostar does not carry cars, just foot passengers.
Eurostar has a choice of standard of first class. If you prefer First class then you will be served a hot airline-style meal with wine and/or champagne which is included in the fare.
Standard fare passengers can make use of the café buffets to purchase their refreshments which can either be taken in the buffet bar or at your seat.
Travelling with Eurostar means that you don’t need to check our baggage in but will keep all your bags with you and there is also no weight limitation. Just remember that you will need to make sure that you can carry everything!
Your journey from London ends at the Gare du Nord
If you are only in Paris for a short time then you will want to see as much as possible. So why not take a technology driven tour with a difference? You can whiz around Paris on a Segway Tour. The trendiest technology to hit the City and an innovative way to see Paris in 4-5 hours. A personalized service is guaranteed, as tours are limited to 8 people. When you find yourself in Paris you must consider gliding on a Segway – it’s the most fun you’re likely to have standing up!
The Segway is the first of its kind – a self-balancing, personal transportation device that’s designed to operate in any pedestrian environment. Since their introduction, the day and night Segway tours have regularly sold out. It’s new, it’s cool and loads of fun!
The 4-5 hour tours are limited to 8 clients with 1 guide so you can count on a great, intimate experience. Discover what it’s like to be a Parisian celebrity as everyone, and we mean everyone, turns to watch you glide by!
Each tour begins with a 30 minute “orientation session”. You can practice on the Segways until you feel comfortable and ready to go out and conquer Paris. The Segway is appropriate for virtually anyone aged 12 and older.
