    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 📰

    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

    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.
  • 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!

    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!

    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

    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.

    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

    Quiet environment, tv to watch, help yourself to tea, coffee, biscuits and more. Cosy and well lit. Also, first advance there is a supplement charge.

    Gorgeous architecture, modern train station, shops, restaurants and free wifi. If you have time, pop into @TheGilbertScott for a cocktail.

    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.

    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.

    An altered timetable will be in place for the Olympic & Paralympic Games - please check before you travel and be prepared for queuing systems to be in place too

    When travelling between European countries with an unlocked smart-phone, pre-purchase a MAXROAM SIM card to enable trouble-free, inexpensive data use. On arrival, buy a local SIM card for better rates

    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.
  • Smart City A.
    We love the architecture at this station, its our local commute every day and always makes us smile when we walk through it

    Trains are usually punctual so get there on time! There's lots of tunnels (even before the big one!) so don't expect much phone signal!

    Fun architecture though not enough to take your mind of Eurostar lines which can be long at certain times. Free wifi.

    Buy anything you need before going through. Only a bar and a WH Smiths in the departure area. And the WiFi may be free but I couldn't get onto it at all.

    Always get here at least 1hr before departure, you never know when there's gonna be a jam at check in! Trust me, I do this trip once a month

    Stop by the Paul bakery just opposite check-in - a much larger choice of sandwiches and some of the best macaroons!

    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.

    Fast check-in, efficient staff, clean station, all the opposite of what you will find if you travel to Paris.

    A few shops/cafes in the departure lounge. If picky, chose from the more diverse options in the station before checking in.

    no time to print your boarding pass? no problem, just open the pdf on your HTC Desire, zoom on the 2D bar code and place your phone on the glass at the gate. hop. you're checked in!

    Don't worry if you arrive too early before departure. This station is well equipped with many shops and eateries.
  • Ross C.

    You can take coffee onto the train if you buy a cup once through security (you can't take hot drinks through security though as aforementioned)

    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.

    Heading to France? You can talk to us about any non-emergencies on any railway in Britain by texting 61016 (in emergencies dial 999). http://j.mp/text61016.

    If departing early in the morning, it's advisable to eat before arriving. The places that are open are usually busy and crowded.
  • Jonathan F.

    Come earlier at least an hour before departure time to avoid missing your train, as the security checks here can be longer than expected.

    If you've sore feet or need a quick taste of true English culture, grab a beer and sit at the comfiest high-chairs @SourcedMarket

    If you're an iPhone user, no need to print out your Eurostar ticket any more. Just download the ticket into the Passbook on your iPhone.

    In busy periods, there's a chance you'll find a seat nearby the 'Continental Bar' inside the departures terminal.

    Came through on crutches and was immediately assisted with a wheel chair and even got a free cupa from the friendly staff at Nero. Chuffed!

    Don't get the 'egg and smoked salmon roll'. It doesn't taste like real food. Grab a sandwich in M&S before you go through to the Eurostar lounge!

    Get a Carte Blanche card through Eurostar and enjoy the business lounge if you are a frequent traveller on the service.

    When you board your train, remove the bin by your seat for extra room and place above your head on the rack. Check its empty first!

    Be ready to go through an airport style security check, don't hold up the line. Also have your passport and ticket ready.

    If you can, buy your food/drinks before checkin in as choice is limited/poor once inside the Eurostar terminal.

    Food is quite expensive - if time allows, walk 2 mins over to King's Cross Station where there are many more outlets to choose from.

    Go & see 9-meter high "The Meeting Place" sculpture, by Paul Day. Base is beautiful too.
