    "I have taken the Eurostar a number of times and find it very convenient. It is much easier than getting to and from the airport. The price is sometimes more than a flight depending on time of year and time of day. "

    Poor view, expensive food! |
    "Although a smooth ride that was convenient for a start and finish location it was disappointing that you are unable to select your seat online. I tried to do this as a early booking but got a seat with a very restricted view. Along with the very expensive food in the buffet car it took the shine off what was to be a fun part of a holiday. "
