A Parisian Escape

A Parisian Escape Paris fr

Let’s face it, when we think of city breaks, especially a city break from Old London Town, Paris often springs to mind. And why is that? Well, we believe it’s because this French capital has everything you can ever want in a city.


The vibrancy, the energy, the language, the rich and fascinating history, being surrounded by impressive modern and historical architecture, the shopping to be had, the endless bars, cafes and eateries to spoil your palate, the art galleries, museums, all of the manicured parks and gardens and so much more than you can ever take in during a short escape. Paris is in every way the ideal city for any break really, but the only catch is you must be selective with what you see, do and experience during the short time you have there…


However, one place where you can actually take in everything and with a daylong smile on your face at that, and on the faces of your family or significant other, is Disneyland Paris!


Disneyland Paris (originally known as Euro Disney Resort), where traffic involves lots of laughter and selfies with everyone’s all-time favourite cartoon characters both new and old, is a swift 35 mins’ train ride from Paris or a 2:40hr high-speed journey on the oh-so sleek and modern Eurostar from London St Pancras.


Just the thought of meeting Mickey Mouse and Snow White naturally puts a smile on anyone’s face. Add to this two theme parks, beautiful resort hotels, a host of shopping and dining facilities, and several recreational and entertainment venues and there you have it, your city break sorted!


Whether you are coming in from London or Paris, be assured that your train journey will be a comfortable one as you and your family can sink into the big, spacious and comfy seats with lots of legroom to move about.


Indeed, one of the biggest perks of train travel on Eurostar and on the high-speed trains around France is the luxurious and comfortable seating offered across all classes. You also have the big windows, which means you can enjoy the scenery while travelling through the countryside. The tables mean you can sit facing your family and spend some quality time playing games together, having a meal or just chatting. Onboard services means things come to you, and that means no needfor you to lift a finger, or foot! We call this being spoilt.


So sit back, relax and let someone else do the driving... Your Parisian escape with your loved ones starts right here on the train.
