And if you feel peckish en route, just stroll to Café Métropole, our onboard bar buffet. There, you’ll find drinks, snacks and meals for any time of day – from flaky morning pastries to after-work apéritifs.

Arriving at Paris Gare du Nord

Eurostar trains arrive right in the heart of Paris at Gare du Nord station.

And since all the passport checks are done before we leave the UK, you can step straight off the train and into the action.

Not far from the platform, you’ll find Métro and RER trains to whisk you to Paris’ top museums and galleries where your Eurostar ticket gives you 2 for 1 entry.
