London, the capital city of England
London, the capital city of England, stands as one the world’s most important cities and tourist destinations in the world.

Starting out from there, you will discover the famous Big Ben Tower, the Westminster Abbey, the London Eye, the Tower Bridge and other wonders which are short distance from each other.
When in the City, visit the Tower of London. Its foundation was laid in 1078 when William the Conqueror ordered the White Tower to be built. This was done to protect London from invaders and the Normans from the people of the City of London. The other main attraction within the City is the St Paul’s Cathedral, built between 1675 and 1710.

- "excellent service" Michael r. 08/11/2015
This was our first experience travelling Europe by train. It was so easy and a comfortable way to go. Having the rail Europe app to assist is a must. We have already recommended this to many of our friends and will use this again.
- "Great Trip" Anthony m. 03/11/2015
Great way to get from London to Brussels. WIFI would make trip even better.
- "Great experience." Alan c. 27/10/2015
A fast, quiet, smooth, and convenient trip from Central London to Central Paris. The only issue we had was getting a coffee from the dining car. Only one person it seems for the entire train and took forever to get a coffee. Alan C. Melbourne, Australia
- "London to Paris Holiday" Andrea w. 26/10/2015
Being able to leave London so early in the morning 6.00am enabled us to have a whole day more in Paris. Arriving in the heart of Paris was convenient plus as accommodation was within walkingin distance. All attractions were near by. The ride was smooth , the seating comfortable, room to snooze if you wished and a café care to top up on drinks etc. Wide windows allowing the views to be seen and enjoyed both sides of the channel. All in all a very enjoyable start to the Holiday.
- "Paris to London by train" Carol p. 21/10/2015
This was a very easy way to travel and comfortable way to travel. Great not having all the hassles of getting to and from the airport. Traveling by train meant that you leave and arrive right in the centre of the city. No waiting for luggage at arrivals either. Trains very clean and punctual. I would travel this way again
- "First experience very positive" Sherrill c. 14/10/2015
This was our first experience on Eurostar and we were very impresses with how smoothly it went. It didn't take long to work out how to locate the platforms and our carriage.
- "First Eurostar trip" Carolyn p. 12/10/2015
I had a very smooth trip once on board. The train left and arrived on time. Seats were comfortable. I didn't quite understand what was involved in checking in at St Pancras. Luckily I left any enough time to get through security and passport control. However, I had arrived quite early as it turned out and my ticket was checked by the staff at the entrance to the departure area. I then caused quite a hold up in my queue trying to scan my boarding ticket. It turned out I was trying to check in too early! My train wasn't open yet. I felt foolish and those behind got quite cranky. Perhaps a Beginners Guide to Departures" would be useful to print on ticket or in response to a suitable question at time of purchase. It would help others and avoid cranky passengers.. I am catching return train tomorrow so hopefully I will better at it this time! Cheers v
- "Paris to London " . 12/10/2015
The departure process took a lot longer than expected from Paris, so we only made the train with a few minutes to spare. The service was punctual and well run, however a little more luggage space would be nice. Overall, good value for money and much more convenient than travelling by plane.
- "Convenient and efficient" David o. 12/10/2015
Getting to St Pancras by car difficult - catch the train. A great way to travel right to heart of Paris. Luggage space for larger bags a bit limited.
- "Eurostar London - Paris" Barbara r. 07/10/2015
After waiting at so many airports on my trip, the train was a welcome relief. Fast, efficient, comfortable, my 3rd time on train and would recommend to anyone.
- "Amazing Experience" Vicki t. 07/10/2015
Our seats were in Standard Premier and the service we received was great. Would highly recommend this train as an option rather than flying from Paris to London. Even with the high speeds reached the train travelled smoothly. One of the better train rides we experienced during our trip to Europe.
- "Best way to travel" Jennifer h. 06/10/2015
Excellent trip. Very comfortable.
- "Fast and comfortable " Jia s. 02/10/2015
The Eurostar was travel fast and smooth , comfortable sitting .
- "Smooth Sailing Under Channel" Marilyn h. 02/10/2015
An extremely smooth speedy trip without the hassles associated with air travel. It was so much easier dealing with both UK and French customs, security, passport control etc. at the one time. A welcome surprise was the tasty meal served. I was not aware that meals were offered. What a thoroughly worthwhile service. I look forward to travelling this way again.
- "Great way to Travel" James g. 28/09/2015
This was a great comfy ride from London to Paris. I enjoyed the high speed train. Better then flying any day. The Paris Station is a little out of the way. So just check where you are staying.
