With only around 300 miles separating the capitals of England and France, it's never been easier-- or quicker--to travel from London to Paris. Explore your options below to decide which way is best for you, whether you decide to travel by train, plane or car.

Train Travel Options

You can get to Paris from London in less than two and a half hours via the high-speed Eurostar train, which traverses the English channel via the "Chunnel". The London to Paris route on the Eurostar leaves from The St Pancras International rail station in central London and arrives at Paris Gare du Nord station. Some trains stop over in Ashford, UK, Calais and Lille in France among others, but most are direct. The major advantage of taking the Eurostar? Assuming there are no delays, the total travel time can be shorter than flying, since check-in takes less time and you're traveling from city center to city center. I personally recommend this option.

Flights From London to Paris

International carriers including British Airways and Air France and regional companies such as Ryanair offer several daily flights from London to Paris, arriving at Roissy-Charles de Gaulle Airport and Orly Airport. Flights to Beauvais Airport located in the far outskirts of Paris tend to be a cheaper option, but you'll need to plan on at least an extra hour and fifteen minutes to get to central Paris.

Arriving in Paris by Plane? Ground Transport Options

If you're arriving in Paris by plane, you'll need to figure out how to get to the center of the city from the airports.

Renting a Car and Using the Ferry

It's not the easiest option, but some will want to drive from the UK to Paris via the ferry. Hertz offers competitive deals on European car rentals ((Book direct here). For information on using the ferry system, see this page.

Too much moving around - 5 in London (daytrip to

Bath or Cambridge), 5 in Paris (daytrip to versailles or Giverny - 5 in Florence (daytrip to Lucca, Siena or Cortona), 3 in Venice, 4 in Rome and then the rest in Paris... Unless you have a flight pass or Eurail pass, you're going to spend so much time on logisdtics your way, that you won't really see or remember much. Edinburgh is a very long ride from London- (half-day) and Dublin is a day if you don't fly. Prague is closer to Vienna or Berlin than it is to where you're wanting to go. I like to use a base and go on daytrips instead of packin every three days or so. I've done trips from 17 days to 2 years in Europe
