The Eurostar:

The journey between London and Paris takes less than three hours, passing en route through the 31-mile-long Channel Tunnel.

The idea of a road tunnel between England and France was first suggested to Napoleon in 1802. It was not until nearly two centuries later that the dream became reality when digging began on the Channel Tunnel or "Chunnel" as it was known in its construction period. The $15 billion link, one of Europe's biggest infrastructure projects to date, was officially opened by President Mitterand of France and HRH Queen Elizabeth II of England, in 1994.

The tunnel consists of 3 interconnected tubes: 1 rail track each way plus 1 service tunnel. Its length is 31 miles, of which 23 miles are underwater. Its average depth is 150 feet under the seabed.

The American Society of Civil Engineers has declared the tunnel to be one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World. 95 miles of tunnels were dug by a workforce of nearly 13,000. The volume of rubble removed from the tunnel is three times greater than that of the Cheops Pyramid in Egypt.

4 Days Minimum Advance Booking Required. Hotel pick-up is not included; departure is from Gare du Nord train station (details on your E-Ticket). Rates are in US Dollars. Please order online or call to order or for more information.
