What You Can Expect

London Day Trip from Paris by Eurostar

See the wonders of London like the London Eye

Begin your Paris to London day trip in the center of the French capital, where you'll meet your host and get your round-trip Eurostar ticket. Board the 8:13am train, which deposits you in London at about 9:30am after a 2 hour 15 minute trip.

Arrive at London's St Pancras station to meet your London host and receive your ticket for the hop-on hop-off bus tour of the city. Your host escorts you to the St Pancras station bus stop and leaves you to see the English capital independently. To get right to your hop-on hop-off tour, take the Station Connector black line to whichever sightseeing bus stop you wish (you can change to the red line at Baker Street if needed). Climb aboard the next double-decker bus to start your introduction to the city. Click on 'View additional info' below to see a map of the bus routes.

The sightseeing bus tour offers an ideal overview of London's centuries of history, with an informative audio commentary available in multiple languages to explain the sights around you. Hop off the bus at any point that you want to explore on foot, including sights such as Big Ben, the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square and the Houses of Parliament.

Your hop-on hop-off sightseeing ticket includes a cruise on the River Thames, too. To take advantage of this, disembark from the bus tour at the Westminster stop and board the nearby boat to see the city from a different vantage point.

The day is yours to construct as you like, and in London your options are plentiful. Visit a world-famous museum. Stroll through a picturesque park. Enjoy lunch and a pint in a traditional English pub.

After roughly eight hours in London, make your way back to St Pancras station (be sure to leave enough time after sightseeing to return to the station on time) to climb back on the London-to-Paris Eurostar for the return trip to the French capital. You'll arrive at Gare du Nord station in the evening.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2016

Thoroughly enjoyed the high-speed train ride to and from London back to Paris. I had a great time on the bus tour and the river cruise. Also, had fun walking around London and taking pictures of historical sites.

I would highly recommend this day trip to London!

This tour was amazing!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2016

Taking the train was part of the fun. The train is so smooth, quiet and comfortable.
London is a great city despite the crowds and traffic ... would like to spend more time
exploring London - that will be the next trip. If you do not have a lot of time to stay in London, the
one day trip is worthwhile - it's fun to 'get a taste' of the city and see the differences between Paris and London - all in one day!

great trip...little pricy for what you get. Could of booked the train trip on my own at a way less price. Yes
they met us. But a hop on hop off buss pass and a river cruise took the whole time seeing nothing. So we hired a cab for the day and never used the hop on hop off. We seen all of London this way not just bus stops waiting for people to get on and off.

Had a great day! We ended up going off on our own and riding the subway to Abby Road, but the option for hop on hop off was great, the boat tour was awesome, and am glad I we did this tour. Great memories.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2015

Loved the fast train ride and did get to see some of London for the day. Might recommend people take a cab to Piccadilly Circus to get out of the traffic instead of getting on the local tour bus, on, off. No time to waste. We loved the wheel ride sponsored by Coke!

We loved our London day trip! While riding the hop-off, hop-on tour bus we had time to ride the London Eye, take a river cruise, eat fish and chips for lunch and shop at Selfridges! We will definitely be back to spend a week!
