London to Paris in 2 hours 15 minutes! The high-speed Eurostar London to Paris passenger train via the Channel Tunnel, travels at speeds of 186 MPH and covers a distance of 307 miles.
The Eurostar leaves from the pristine St Pancras Station in central London and arrives at Gare du Nord in the 10th Arrondissement of Paris just 135 minutes later.
The Eurostar has become such a fixture of Paris and London life that it's hard to believe that the first Eurostar trip took place in 1994. Since then 130 million passengers have riden the Eurostar. Trains leave every hour, seven days a week, year round except Christmas Day, from both London and Paris.
You spend only twenty minutes in the Channel Tunnel, for the rest of the trip you're speeding through the countrysides of Kent and northern France.
Of course, the Eurostar also goes from Paris to London, and you can book either direction at the online Eurostar Booking Center.
