Eurostar

Inaugurated in 1994, following the completion of the undersea Channel Tunnel linking England with France, Eurostar is a high-speed international passenger-rail service. Reaching speeds of up to 186mph (299km/h) on dedicated lines, the Eurostar journeys through the Kent countryside before diving into the 31.4 mile (50.5km) long Channel Tunnel at Folkestone. The train emerges at Coquelles in Northern France.

Connecting the cities of London, Paris and Lille in France, and the Belgian capital of Brussels, Eurostar allows travellers to avoid the long queues and lengthy transfers associated with air travel whilst maintaining a comfortable, fast service.

Eurostar launched services from St. Pancras and Ebbsfleet International in November 2007 following the completion of the second section of the UK's first high-speed line. Journey times have subsequently fallen, with London-Paris taking 2 hours 15 minutes, London-Brussels taking 1 hour 51 minutes, and the trip from London to Lille lasting just 1 hour 20 minutes.

Eurostar's fleet of 38 modified Train à Grande Vitesse (TGV) trains consist of two power cars and either 14 or 18 passenger carriages offering a modern and comfortable service to passengers.

A fleet of Eurostar E320 trains will be introduced in 2015, capable of speeds of up to 320km/h. The brand new trains boast interiors designed by Italian firm, Pininfarina.

Eurostar's Standard Class coaches feature two seats on either side of the central aisle, most of which is arranged in an 'airline' seating configuration with drop down tray tables. There are two tables for four per carriage. Passengers travelling in Eurostar Standard Class coaches can take advantage of the Bar-Buffet, which sells a range of snacks, meals, hot and cold drinks - including Champagne!

The highest class of Eurostar travel available for leisure customers is Standard Premier Class. In your dedicated Standard Premier carriage, you'll find a less dense seat configuration, meaning the seats are larger and you have ample space to relax and stretch out. As part of the service, you'll enjoy complimentary drinks and refreshments, served at your seat by friendly, helpful staff.

For the class of Eurostar travel used on your chosen tour, please refer to the 'What's Included' section of the tour page.

“This holiday is way up there besides other favourite holidays with GRJ. COVID requirements in France did not affect the enjoyment of the holiday, in fact they made it feel a safer place to be. Firstly the Hotel du Roi lived up to everything you would expect from a 5* Hotel; high quality rooms, facilities, food and attentive staff. I even had a glass of champagne (included in the breakfast buffet) watching the sun rise over the Cite on the morning of departure! There was a good balance between planned trips and free time. The planned activities were most enjoyable and informative about local history. Our day in Narbonne coincided with the National Patrimoine Day (Heritage Day) when as well as the entrance fee to Museums & other Historic places being free, there were exhibitions & celebrations take place in the streets. It was so interesting & enjoyable. Another highlight for me was the visit to Mirepoix on market day followed by a coach drive through the French countryside. Carcassonne itself is a very interesting place to stay. The hotel was well placed by the river for both the Cite and the town in the other direction. Plenty to do all around. I took myself off for a boat ride along the Canal du Midi which I thoroughly enjoyed. Finally a word to solo travellers who might be considering a holiday with Great Rail Journeys. This was my 6th holiday with them since I was widowed and I intend to do many more. As a lone traveller you feel safe with them. Any problems, should they arise, are not your problem but expertly resolved by the Tour Manager. Fellow travellers have always been very inclusive and I have never felt left out, in fact far from it.
