London to Paris Chunnel Travel

The Chunnel is a giant underwater tunnel connecting Great Britain and continental Europe.  It is 31 miles long, 23 miles of which are underwater!  Train travel between Paris and London via the Chunnel takes just under three hours.  Beginning this September, after the opening of a high speed rail line in the UK, travel time will be reduced to 2 hours and 35 minutes.  Ease of connection to other train service and speedy travel time make the Chunnel a great alternative to air travel between London and Paris.

Train reservations are best booked in advance as popular times and discounted fares may sell out.  You will need to choose between Standard, First Class, and Premium seating.  All reservations include a seat assignment.
