How are your summer holidays going? Apparently there’s going to be a little mini heatwave next week. Got anything planned? Want to win a family day trip to Paris with Eurostar? Or how about a day trip to Brussels? The lovely chaps at Eurostar are encouraging us Brits to head off and explore Europe. I’ve challenged Sam to spend a day in Paris next week doing as many free things as he possibly can – update coming very soon, but until then, fancy doing the same? Throughout August, you can jump on board Eurostar for a day trip to Paris and Brussels for just £58 return, spend 8 hours exploring and then hop back on the train and be home before bedtime. Kids under 4 even travel for free! To celebrate, I’ve got a family ticket to give away!
Win a family day trip to Paris (or Brussels) and there are so many things to see and do: go cultural in Brussels at Bozar, the centre for fine arts, with special activities and exhibitions for the family. or head to Paris and grab a crepe on the Rue Montparnasse, or buy baguettes and some cheese and have a picnic by the Eiffel Tower. Bag a great view of Paris from the ferris wheel at the Fête des Tuileries – the annual summer festival in the Tuileries garden situated near the Louvre, or just wander by the Seine with an ice cream. Heaven.
Eurostar passengers travelling to Paris and Brussels can also take advantage of 2 for 1 entry into a range of top museums and galleries including Musée d’Orsay and Grand Palais in Paris and Bozar in Brussels, all by simply showing their Eurostar tickets at entry. And remember, any EU Citizen under 26 gets free entry to any of the national museums in Paris.
Throughout August, you can jump on the Eurostar from London St Pancras at 7:01am, and be in Paris by 10:17am local time or if you fancy a slightly later start there’s one departing at 7:55am, arriving in Paris at 11:17am local time.
Coming back, jump on the train in Paris at 8:13pm, and you’ll be back at London St Pancras at 9:39pm local time or even leave it til 9:13pm and arrive back at 10:39pm.
For Brussels, you can depart London St Pancras at 6:50am, arrive in Brussels Midi at 10:07am local time, then depart at 6:56pm, arriving back at 7:57pm.
