    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.

    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 :)

    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

    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)

    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

    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.

    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 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!

    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'.

    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.

    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"

    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.

    If you are going to get a taxi don't let some "helpful" people get your luggage. They will demand money after without even ask if you want the "service".
