Connecting in Paris

Onward connections from the Gard du Nord

If you are travelling between the UK and the French regions you might need to change stations in Paris.

Taking the Métro 

If you're travelling across Paris, your Eurostar ticket does not include the Métro or RER. 

You can buy Métro tickets in advance in the Eurostar departure lounge at St Pancras and on board Eurostar at the bar buffet. This will save you time on arrival as the queues at the ticket machines can be long.

Taking a taxi 

The taxi rank at Paris Gare du Nord is near Eurostar arrivals. Head to the concourse at the front of the train then take the exit on the right where you'll see the line of taxis. 

If you're travelling in Business Premier, speak to the team in the Business Premier lounge or on board to pre-book a taxi and beat the queues.

On your way back to the UK 

En route back to the UK, make sure you allow at least 30 minutes to check in for your Eurostar train from Gare du Nord, or 10 minutes if you’re travelling Business Premier.
