Prices explained

At Loco2 we believe in price transparency. We use real data from Loco2 searches to estimate the cheapest fares you should be able to find for your journey.

The cheapest price is the lowest fare we've ever found for this journey. These prices can usually be found by searching when booking opens but they vary due to availability, which depends on factors like the day of the week or time of year.

More popular journeys include 30 day advance and 7 day advance prices. These are updated every two weeks using prices we've found by searching exactly 7 or 30 days from the most recent Thursday (we picked Thursday because this is when average prices are usually found).

30 day and 7 day prices fluctuate based on demand and availability at the time of search. For example, the 7-day price in summer is likely to be more expensive than the same journey in winter.

Prices are sourced in GBP and converted to other currencies using the daily market exchange rate.

We're always seeking to improve how price-checking works, and we welcome feedback on how we can make it better.

  1. It is nowadays so easy to travel by train from Paris to London. Comfortable Eurostar trains leave Paris every day at least once each hour. The fastest Eurostar services take just 2 hrs 15 mins to reach London.

    Eurostar launched its Paris to London service in 1994. More than two decades later, this rail route via the Channel Tunnel has taken the lion’s share of the market for travel between the two capitals.

    Bookings for the Eurostar journey from Paris to London normally open 180 days in advance of travel. Book early for the cheapest fares. Tickets purchased less than one month prior to travel may be pricey, but even there you may still find a good deal if you are flexible as to travel date and opt for off-peak trains. This is a route where the price of a return ticket may be less than the price of two singles so, if you plan to travel from Paris to London and back again, it’s definitely worth booking both legs of your journey in a single transaction.

    Paris to London

    Eurostar trains from Paris to London depart from Paris Gare du Nord station. You need to check in for your train about 45 minutes prior to departure. There are light-touch security checks, including a scan of all baggage, at the Gare du Nord. The route north from Paris runs through Picardy towards Flanders and the Channel Tunnel. You’ll reach the tunnel portal about 80 minutes after leaving Paris.

    Emerging from the Channel Tunnel in Kent, the train cruises through gentle downland, bridging the Medway and then diving under the Thames to reach St Pancras Station in London. On their way to London, some Eurostar trains from Paris stop at either Ashford International or Ebbsfleet International.
