Travel Europe with Tunnel vision
When the Channel Tunnel (or Le Tunnel sous la Manche if you're drenched in Gallic flair) opened to great acclaim in November 1994, Eurostar began its first trans-Channel journeys. The sprint from London's Waterloo International Station right through to Gard Du Nord, Paris was the first of its kind.
It was a service that revolutionised European travel, giving explorers a more efficient way to reach the mainland. The 'Chunnel' heralded an end to hanging around for hours on end for a spirit-crushing wait for a delayed plane flight. It meant that traveller could now avoid the rigmarole of countless baggage checks and security checks - and all to get to the relatively close favourite city, Paris.
Back in 1994, it was Eurostar that led the way through this tunnel of the future. Now, over 20 years later, the service boasts a flawless reputation of accessibility, comfort, convenience, frequency, punctuality, quality and safety.
