    Don't take the taxi stand on the right. Take the exit on the front and cross the street. Beware of your valuables when moving around the station and just outside.

    Arriving past 9pm ? Go wait for your connexion upstairs in the Eurostar Check-In area. It's empty, quiet. There are standing desks, and the best view of the train station. Lovely spot.

    Buy your museum pass from the tourist desk on your left when you left your Eurostar train. Then go to downstair to have your weekly Navigo pass. It can be loaded till Thursday night for that week.

    Wifi free and to register in order to use the wifi. I like the display of arrival and departures during changing info. Very classic it flipped one by one :)

    Although it's a well connected and very big station, sometimes the signalization could be improved enormously.

    Could use a bit of a scrubbing, but it's well located in the City; easy to walk to good restaurants and transfers to taxis and the Metro are a breeze.

    Eurostar is very nice way to travel from London. Train station is easy to navigate. Check out the bon bon stand. Get there at least an hour before your train. Customs took longer than expected

    Nice place with lots of shops selling packed food for travelers. Good selection of shops selling various merchandise enough for the casual shoppers to wile away a few hours

    If you can't get wifi in the station (down most of the time), go across the street to Mc Donalds, where it's free, and which is also a safer place to wait at if you arrive late at night.

    The Mobilis is the Parisians travel card. Not advertised to tourists/visitors, but easily obtainable from the multilingual automatic ticket machines in any station. A lot cheaper than a "Paris Pass"

    Easy to access, a bit overcrowded but then you are in Paris, some nice small cafes as Paul, Maison Pradier and Super Wild Coffee inside right near the platforms.

    All the snack bars offer the same items but the one on the right corner, if the tracks are behind you, seems nicest. No need to arrive early.

    Don't forget to visit the melting house sculpture when you're here. It's in front of gare du Nord. (left hand when you walk out of the station)

    If you are returning a car you rented from somewhere else (CDG)... the car park is in the -6/F of the basement garage. The entrance of the car park is on Rue de Compiègne!

    Get a free Lebara 3G Sim at the Relay kiosk next to platform 3 and activate it using the public wifi. Comes with a 1€ balance and 100mb of free 3G data.

    Jason Bourne travels to Paris Gare du Nord to leave his red bag in a locker, but Marie's car is spotted and he has to make an escape in The Bourne Identity (2002).

    If looking for the Eurostar check-in, it's upstairs through the staircase which is to the right from the main entrance. Don't get lost in the underground floors — they are confusing and smell badly.

    Buy your baguettes for the trip at Paul's, located on the right of the International train platform.

    There are luggage lockers under the main concourse (near the taxi rank). They range in price from 5€50 to 9€50 for 24 hrs. They only take coins and the change machines cannot be relied upon.

    You can use Credit Card to buy subway ticket. There are a limited number of vending machine, that’s why we sometimes have to make lines and waste time.

    In search for the lockers? When facing the arriving trains, walk almost all the way to the left and look for the locker-sign on your left hand. They're found downstairs in the 'basement'.

    There are plans for a face-lift for 2024. Gare du Nord really needs it. This is a really depressing place to be. Very limited facilities and expensive. Bring your own food and drink for your trip!

    Beware of scammers when purchasing train tickets from the machines. The security doesn't seem to be helping when being reported, they might be working together. Go to the ticket office when in doubt.

    Arrive extra early due to security checks. They didn't open up boarding/security until about 10 minutes before our train departed. We were at the end of a very long line and almost missed the train.

    If getting the Eurostar the business premier entrance to UK boarder patrol is actually not for business premier customers it is actually the non EU passport line and really slow ...

    The new Eurostar carriage stock seem more spacious but the seat headrests are badly done. Don't expect to be able to sleep in them...

    Way too busy but can't really not go here if you're traveling by train. They have enough stores and places to eat but just quite crowded and not super clean
