Paris city breaks

Paris city breaks

2 hrs 15 mins from St Pancras Int’l
1 hr 52 mins from Ashford Int’l

Whether it's the Sacré Cœur at sunset, the quaint corner cafés and cobbled streets, or a taste of a heavenly macaron that does it, you're bound to find yourself falling in love with the City of Light.

With Eurostar tickets from as little as £72 and trains leaving up to 18 times a day, your short break can start in London or Kent.

There's certainly no shortage of landmarks to tick off and naturellement you'll want to start with the Eiffel Tower. Take the lift or brave the 704 steps to enjoy a panoramic view of the city laid out below.

Next up is the Louvre with its futuristic glass pyramid. Plan your visit for the first Sunday of the month and you'll get to see Mona Lisa's mysterious smile for free.

If you're feeling flush, hit the boutiques on the Champs-Élysées at the weekend, where the great and the good go to see and be seen. Fashionistas should also make a beeline for Galeries Lafayette and find time for a wander down Rue Saint-Honoré.

And when you're ready for a breather, picnic like a true Parisian, taking your favourite charcuterie, cheese and a bottle of wine to the banks of the Seine as the sun sets over Notre Dame. Parfait.

There's never been a better time to explore Paris. So sit back, relax and let us whisk you away...
