London to Paris

By Train, Coach or Cheap Flights?

Paris - the City of Light - is top of many people's list of places to visit from London. The good news is that going from London to Paris is easy, and there are several options. By far the most convenient - and the most relaxing - way to go is on the Eurostar train. This takes you quickly from city centre to city centre in just over two hours. You can book London-Paris train tickets on the Voyages-Sncf website (formerly Rail Europe) too. You can also go by coach or by plane, though driving from London to Paris isn’t recommended for the average visitor.

Planning a London-Paris Trip
There are two main things to decide, and one depends upon the other. The first is how long do you want to spend in Paris, and the second is to choose how you’ll get there.

A Day Trip to Paris from London
Can you make a day trip to Paris from London? Yes, you can. A day is obviously nowhere near long enough to enjoy Paris fully, but if it is all the time you’ve got, and you really do want to see Paris, then do it. You can make it there and back in a day by plane or train, but the London-Paris Eurostar train is by far the best option. See the links below for how to get to Paris from London by train, by coach or by flying.
