"Arriving at Gare du Nord we (family of 2 adults and 3 kids under 10 plus luggage) had just under an hour to transfer to Gare du Lyon. The staff at St Pancras reiterated the Rail Europe website recommendation that the best way to connect between the stations would be by metro. We missed our train by seconds having spent a harrowing time trying to move the family and luggage through the labyrinth. Broken down escalators, lifts, poor directions created a very stressful experience for us. Should have taken a taxi. The family watched the train depart Gare du Lyon and at the same time I lugged the last load of bags up the platform stairs. Headed straight to the ticket office to try and reschedule. Queue was well organised but ticket system display showed currently serving #58 - my number #119. Reached the counter 9 minutes prior to next train departure and was charged 200 euro for the effort!!!!! Made the train with seconds to spare. Enjoyed the journey. Don't take the metro unless you are travelling light and can negotiate the obstacle course. IT WAS LIKE THE AMAZING RACE. "
