Here are some basic tips for purchasing tickets between Paris and London on the Eurostar
  • Trains depart frequently, about one an hour during the day
  • Purchase tickets at www.eurostar.com.   The sooner tickets are purchased, the lower the fares.  I recently purchased a ticket for 50 pounds (about $75) 6 weeks in advance.
  • Seat selection may be made online also.

Gare du Nord is the departure and arrival station in Paris.  St. Pancras is the terminal in London.   I suggest arriving for your train at least one hour beforehand.   There is a security check, not quite as thorough as in an airport, but be prepared with your ticket and identification upon boarding.

I thought the ride was comfortable, interesting and easy.

One other suggestion I would have is if traveling to London by Eurostar from Paris, you might want to consider a hotel near the St. Pancras station.   We stayed at the Tunes Kings Cross hotel, a 6-minute walk from the station.   Rooms were very small, but the hotel management was polite and the rooms were clean and quite.
