The worst part of our trip to Paris every time. Compared to the pleasant experience at Kings Cross our experience at GDN getting the Eurostar is always awful and that’s when the trains are working. Long queues with no order and people pushing. When they...More

This station was probably fit for purpose when it was first built. Steam trains would have chuffed in and out to domestic destinations. With SNCF, Thayls and Eurostar all competing for space in 2018 this is no longer the case. We used Eurostar to get...More

Very important rail station in Paris. Either you are travelling to London, Brussels or Amsterdam, here is your departure point. Also for some domestic destinations. You can find restaurants and limited amount of shops (press, mainly). But the place in an eternal process of reconstruction....More
