Treat your guests to a high-speed masterclass

 

When you're travelling with Eurostar, the trip itself is always part of the experience. You can relax, stretch out and watch the scenery go by as you speed to your destination, or get up, move around, and take a walk to Café Metropole for a drink and a chat with your fellow travellers. 

If you are celebrating a special occasion or you're a business looking to reward staff or clients with an unforgettable experience, we can take it up a level to really wow your guests. Choose a topic that is relevant to your destination and the people in your group, and we will organise an expert to come on board and give them a masterclass as we whizz you across Europe in style. 

Call 03448 224 800 or email exclusive.groups@eurostar.com to find out more and get a quote.

 

Our masterclasses

 

    • Destination art immersion

      Get an introduction to the history of art in your destination before you even arrive. Whether you're travelling to France, the Netherlands or Belgium, this colourful experience, hosted by art historian Euan MacDonald, will have you perfectly prepared to appreciate the local art.

      This is no art lecture – it’s a fast-paced cultural tour of the city that will keep you interested and entertained and give you a new perspective of the art works you'll see on your break.

    • Wine workshops

      More than a wine-tasting experience - this course focuses on the practical side of ordering wine in a restaurant. Our wine experts, either Tom Surgey (Ridgeview Wine); Henry Butler (wine merchant); or IWSC Wine Communicator of the year, Jane Parkinson will show you how to navigate a wine list to make the best choices for you.

      Along with how to make better wine choices, you’ll find out more about some of the hottest restaurants in your destination city and their signature dishes, so you can pair your wines with confidence when you’re there. 

    • Cheese pairing

      One of the most enjoyable ways to experience a culture is through its food and, with France and the Netherlands as two of our destinations, cheese is an obvious place to start.

      Patrick McGuigan, Britain’s leading cheese writer and World Cheese Awards judge, hosts our on board cheese-tasting experience where you'll sample cheeses you’ve never tried before, while learning about how they’re produced. You'll try cheeses from different Eurostar destination cities and countries, including new wave and classic cheeses, or team them up with drinks to create a Eurostar destination-based taste test.

    • High-speed gin tasting

      The popularity of gin has taken off in the last few years, and it's spreading across Europe with specialist gins served everywhere from ritzy cocktail bars to traditional pubs.

      During the Eurostar gin experience our experts, either Helen Chesshire; Dawn Davies (The Spirits and Whisky Exchange); or Jane Parkinson (BBC Saturday Kitchen) will introduce you to a range of rare and exclusive blends as you speed through the countryside to your destination. You'll learn about how gin is made, its origins, what tonics to serve with which gin, and the role of those all-important botanicals.

    • Fast fashion secrets

      Want to make sure you're dressed appropriately for every occasion? Book a fashion experience on Eurostar and get beauty secrets and tips on how to stay ahead of trends and always look fabulous from leading style journalists.

      You’ll get answers to your burning fashion questions as well as hearing about new beauty products as our hosts serve up expert make-up advice and tips. They’ll draw on their expertise as beauty columnists for publications like Vogue, Red and the Guardian Weekend magazine.
