  1. In June took this train Paris to London. Wonderful experience very smooth don’t even feel it goes through the occean, for 20 minutes amazing.

  2. not unless the US is bankrupt by then and can’t afford anything other then horses and carriages. :p

  3. Interesting video, though it’s clearly not all of the same train. The ariel shots include footage of a different train.

  4. A tremendous engineering achievement… Congratulations SNCF, BR and especially Alstom and EuroTunnel!

  5. I was just on one of these trains in March for a school trip between London and Paris. It was my first ever time on a train and it was amazing, it was so smooth and so fast, if i ever go to Europe again i will be riding the Eurostar! 🙂

  6. Cracking video. Any particular reason as to why the Kent section comes after the Essex section, through Purfleet & Rainham.?

  7. lol in Norway we are soo long behind when it comes to this….and infrastructure in general….

  8. … I rode eurostar in 2000 from london to paris
    but don’t feel bad because Obamas releasing the funds to
    begin our high speed networks, it takes time. But it will be
    impressive no doubt.

  9. Hello, have you tried “Reveal TravelDeal” (just google it)? I have discovered various ridiculously inexpensive hotels and even plane tickets. This might let you spend less on your upcoming vacation also.

  10. Longest undersea section? What does this mean..? Do you know how many minutes it takes in the tunnel under the sea to pass through, and also could somebody please explain, is the tunnel under the sea-bed, and how does the train descend to such a deep level from the ground level to the sea?

  11. The Channel Tunnel between France and the UK has the longest undersea section in the world! Did you know it is also widely used for freight transport?

  12. How accommodating are these trains to people that like to bring bicycles with them when they travel?

  13. @eurodestanation, so there is a Eurostar and there is a French high-speed train, the TGV, is the fastest passenger train in the world. Same as the Eurostar and the JR 500 from West Japan. Also, TGVs usally travel on special tracks.

  14. Yes, takes longer to get to Paris. And I noticed the TGV is always late are delayed or you have change at Arras or Lille. Pain! Ferry is nice because it’s open and you get the nice scenry. But, train is alot faster but if you want too see more than it’s ferry all the way but it leaves you along way from your destination

  15. I agree ferry is a nicer way to travel, but it takes a long time to get to Paris from London – probably 7-8 hours

  16. I really enjoy watching your videos. However, I must insist it’s alot cheaper too get to and from Paris from London. It’s £15 on ferry to Dunkirk then £10-28 to Paris

  17. but you’d still need a train to get to other side duh !
    so might as well get eurostar which takes you right there as opposed to folkstone to calais on eurotunnel !

  18. Yes you can take a car trough the tunnel (on a train). Eurotunnel operate shuttle services between Folkestoneand Calais for cars and Lorries.
