75 Million Riders Can’t Be Wrong. This is Eurostar
You’re ready to travel onboard Eurostar – the world’s finest rail service. Since 1998, over 75 million passengers have enjoyed this engineering marvel. Whisking travelers through the Chunnel at record-breaking times and trains big enough to dwarf a jumbo jet.
What’s the Chunnel? Consisting of three interconnecting tubes: a rail track for travel in each direction and one service tunnel. The length of the tunnel is 31 miles long, but only 23 miles are underwater. The average depth is 150 feet under the seabed. The Eurostar only spends 20 minutes of its journey in the tunnel.
Eurostar runs from London to Paris and vice versa, every 30 minutes during peak hours and approximately once per hour during non-peak time. During the peak summer season, up to 24 trains run daily to Paris. From London to Brussels and vice versa, service is offered approximately every 2 hours. During the peak summer season, up to 10 trains can run daily to Brussels. All classes of travel are entitled to two pieces of luggage and a carry-on bag. Except on Ski Trains, when a pair of skis or a snowboard is allowed too. Hit the slopes in the French Alps!
Even St. Pancras International Station, Eurostar’s thoroughly modern hub, is a destination in itself. Originally built in 1868, the station provides excellent connections to the rest of London and the UK. Not to mention Europe’s longest champagne bar. It’s been billed as one of the most romantic places for a date, and you’ve not even left the station.
What’s on board? You’ll enjoy no-smoking cars throughout the train, comfy seating and dedicated cars for those traveling with young children. There are four classes to choose from – from Standard to Business Premier, where you’ll enjoy the incredible Eurostar lounge.
Complete with marble bar counters, free bar, armchairs, newspapers and magazines, internet and complimentary Wi-Fi access plus luggage storage, these lounges help make your trip more about pleasure than business.
Taking Eurostar is really the destination. Flying to mainland Europe? For the birds.
