    Stop here for a food/shopping/pee and/or other break before going under the tunnel

    Much improved terminal than it used to be. Better choice of food outlets including Burger King and Starbucks. Toilets refurbished and relocated to a bigger location in centre of terminal.

    To make it easier to remember, I would have named the UK and French terminals Nelson and Napoleon, instead of Victor Hugo and Charles Dickens, respectively.

    Having the passport control after the calling might prevent boarding your train but they usually care much less than on the way into the UK

    I take this route a lot and 80% of the time it goes well. It's quick but don't expect much. Stay in your car relax or take a quick nap . Avoid the toilets 😬.

    To say sorry for delays all drinks are free and a little food package .. Staff all very cheerful and helpful however difficult to say how long we have to wait - Burger King staff very helpful

    Try to arrive 2 hours earlier then your departure time: you won't miss your slot and, if you are lucky, you'll be able to travel earlier!!!

    The Eurotunnel toilets won the Loo Of The Year Awards 2013. Try the soap, the viscosity is superb!

    Go to the toilet at the terminal. The toilets on the train are rank

    Mark Graham · October 19, 2013
  • Nick L.

    If you're on the single deck the toilets are just over the loading deck at either end of the train and tgere are three of them each end.

    The Eurotunnel is a great service but the price of food in the terminal is DISGRACEFUL. £5 for a ham sandwich. Greedy & opportunist. Booo.

    If you are on the single deck the loo is just beyond the loading deck each end of the train

    Take snacks and drinks, expensive to pick up from these shops.

    Smooth ride by bus. You feel like in a space shuttle :)

    If you arrive early you can usually catch an earlier train, although there may be a small fee.

    Magic train that makes all the road signs change language.

    Bring on a book if coming at half term or bank holiday!

    Tome dois dramins antes de passar por esse túnel de ônibus.

    Try to bring your food... The food stalls are just slow, horrible and inefficient

    Luca Pietrobelli · May 3, 2013

    End of the tunnel.... Yessss

    Paul Emmanuel Maugars · April 30, 2013

    Never miss out an opportunity for a visit to the facilities

    Police are a little bit heavy handed. If you're not white, prepare to be asked a heck of a lot of questions.

    Jonathon Greenhow · April 17, 2013
  • Nick L.

    If you get time get a breakfast bun at Rest-Bites, £5.00 including coffee! It's not a bad deal and the staff are great ;-)

    Nick Lloyd · April 11, 2013
  • Stepan R.

    Russian citizens residents in the UK: your passport will not be stamped by French border control when travelling out and to the UK via Eurotunnel. I don't think they even check if you have a visa!

    Stepan Roger · April 2, 2013
  • Julian L.

    The burger bar in the loading queue is great. So much better than the crappy terminal!

    Julian Ludwick · March 22, 2013

    Get there earlier than booking time, u can get earlier crossing

  • Shelly B.

    Showing up early can have benefits, we caught an earlier train!

    Shelly Blake · February 15, 2013
  • Charl C.

    Toilets are at either end of the train - don't wait until the last minute!

    The automatic coffee machine is really bad

    Shaun Donnelly · December 29, 2012
  • Nick L.

    Great tea and coffee @ coffee shop in the lanes

    Nick Lloyd · December 28, 2012

    When you leave UK French Border Control in early hours they don't check the passports.what saves time.

  • Roly T.

    You can now make phone calls and use the Internet under the sea. Bizarrely only in one of the two tunnels...

    Roly Tree · December 10, 2012
  • David S.

    The timings are tight so don't get caught out by 'wait for call' but look more at final call time when thinking of ordering food

    David Scholtz · November 19, 2012
  • Mike R.

    Don't bother turning up early anymore, but don't be late either! The good old flexibility has gone... You only get on your booked train or hours later!
