    Tip for people sitting at a table seat. You can remove the knee cracking ashtrays so you have more room for your legs! Then conveniently place it above your head in the little gutter. More leg room!!

    It's nice to arrive in a station like that after a long way from Paris to London. Free wifi in the whole terminal and a great infrastructure, mixing the old fashion w/ the 21th century's architecture.

    Takes a bit of time with customs and bag check so plan a bit more time ahead! You can print ur tickets at the kiosk if u have ur code so don't worry if u don't have printer access! Wifi is not stable

    While Waiting, we can charge our smartphone battery. But not all the plugs, functioning well. But there's some to choose and you can eat your meals near this handy bar 👌 or buy a magazine to read 📰

    If you struggle for seats downstairs, just take the stairs to the first floor. Carluccio's is almost empty and lots of space inside to warm up. It has toilets as well!

    The information desk sells Paris Metro/RER tickets (no expiration date) in packs of 10. Very useful if you have a tight connection with a station change in Paris.
  • Sebastian G.
    A great station with lots of venues and ways to pass the time. The free wifi all over the station is something all stations should have! Love it!

    The space up around the trains themselves often seems calm and peaceful compared to the chaos below. Hang around under the clock and watch the Eurostar trains come and go.

    Head to the The Undercroft Bar if you struggle to get a seat. Two coffees will cost you around £4.30 and you will be able to get a rest while you wait for the Eurostar.

    If your trip is in the am, get here around 6 and you'll miss long cafe queues starting 630. Toasted ham and cheese better than the meatball sandwich

    Take care at 18:00 there is a train for Paris AND also one for Brussels! most of the time sharing same boarding door... Double check if you are in the right train before discovering it at last second

    Make sure to get here around an hour before your departure! You have to check in and get your bags scanned before your gate. I almost didn't make it! =X

    Looking for just a Paris travel card? Don't bother getting the "Paris Pass". Wait until you arrive in Gare du Nord, and purchase a "Mobilis" card from an automated ticket machine in full english.

    As there are some old tips saying you can't take hot drinks through, just to re-affirm you now can. They even stick it in a cup holder through the scanner.

    If you're travelling on Sunday, be prepared for long queues at the check-in/security area (approx. 20 mins). (something must be done about this..)
  • Jack S.
    Jack SmithApril 22, 2014
    Don't bother checking in until the last minute as there's very little to do once passed security, with no re-entry. Enjoy all the shops and food outlets in the Arcade, Circle and Grand Terrace first.

    Take an extra half hour and tour the station. It's some of the best architecture you'll find during your stay in London and the gift shops are not terribly overpriced.
