Globetrotting

This article aims to provide some advice on how to conveniently travel between London (or nearby Oxford) and Paris.

 

1. Between London and Paris

The choice between plane and train is an easy one. With the high speed Eurostar train you can travel between London and Paris in just over 2 hours. This is not only more comfortable and environmentally friendly than flying, but usually faster and cheaper as well. The Eurostar runs from St Pancras station in London to Gare du Nord station in Paris. Booking your train online is very convenient, but in order to get the cheapest tickets, you will have to do so a few weeks in advance. Then you have to pay less than £100 for a return journey. There don't seem to be any student deals, but if you're under 26 you can get a youth ticket. If you want to avoid the £3 credit card handling fee, you can pay with a debit card (Solo/Maestro).
