UK United Kingdom - FR France

To travel by train from the United Kingdom to France you have several options. The fastest one by train is to use the direct Eurostar train from London to Paris. If you search for a cheaper option, have a look at the buses connecting London to Paris. The ferry Dover to Calais isn't an option anymore: too slow, too expensive for foot passengers.

To buy train tickets for your travel from the United Kingdom to France, buy first a ticket from your departure station to London (Omio, Trainline, ACPRail). A second ticket from London to Paris for the Eurostar train (Omio, Trainline). And another ticket for France from Paris to your final destination (Omio, Trainline).

Of course this example can vary and finally depends on your route.
