    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.

    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

    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"

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
