Eurostar is a high speed rail service that started its operations in 1994. It links the United Kingdom to France and Belgium via the Channel Tunnel. It is a very fast way of communication. The shortest trip made between London and Paris was 2 hours and 15 minutes, London and Brussels 1hour 15 minutes and between London and Lille just 1 hour 20 minutes. Eurostar makes 17 trips to Paris daily, 10 to Brussels and 9 to Lille. It has changed the way people travel to Paris and Brussels. People now travelling to both those cities from London have doubled. Since 2005, Eurostar has been offering connecting services and providing links to over 100 destinations across Europe. Eurostar’s ticket prices are reasonable and meet all budgets. People travelling for leisure have fares starting from 59 pounds return.
