Shopping in France, mum and I having a day out! Diamond review

AdvantagesQuick, Easy, no walking or stairs for the disabled.

DisadvantagesI can't think of any.

"Well, the Channel Tunnel. Lets start with a bit of history here. Apparently they had been digging it or trying to for far far longer than I can remember, or even my mother who is my travelling companion. According to my mum the original idea was Napoleon's. So, what is it? I have had a look at the website, and read all about it and now I know more than I did just by travelling along it, so in short, Euro tunnel is a long tunnel that goes under ..."

Travelling through a tunnel under sea

AdvantagesCould be good value, frequent, simple to book and travel, comfortable, fast

DisadvantagesPrice strategy, the unnecessary waits, the width for some vehicles, no scenery, nothing to do on the train

"This opinion is on the Le Shuttle service operating between Dover and Calais. There are two services that operate through the Channel Tunnel, the Eurostar and Le Shuttle. The Eurostar is a passenger service operating between London Waterloo and Paris or Brussels and Le Shuttle (it may be called Eurotunnel now, but it says Le Shuttle on the trains, so there!) is the service for passengers with cars. I traveled on Le Shuttle on my way to Spa-Francorchamps ..." Read review

Smooth and Fast

AdvantagesVery Quick, easy and the smoothest way to cross the channel

DisadvantagesNone apart from cost

"Le Shuttle is a delight. It couldn't be easier or faster to cross the channel by car. If you've not tried it yet, read on. Le Shuttle is the name given to the train that transports vehicles between Folkestone and Calais via the channel tunnel. HOW IT WORKS You enter the tunnel complex from the M20 motorway, driving south almost to Folkestone. The tunnel has its own exit ramp off the motorway. As you drive down the entrance road you come to ..." Read review

OHH LA LA CEST CIE BON

AdvantagesQuick, clean, cheap food and booze

DisadvantagesYou can spend loads of money

"Note to self: If you work in an off licence the last thing you need to do is go to France and purchase more of the stuff!! Ok reminder over, I have to keep telling, myself this otherwise I might just find myself eloping to France; not only for the cheap booze, but the relaxed life style to accompany this! A couple of weeks ago I had the need to have a spending splurge and what better way than to get the neighbours together and the favourite ..." Read review

Do the locomotion with me....

AdvantagesFast,affordable and good service

DisadvantagesPossible delays

"...to cross from France to England without use or need for boats. It was an incredible dream and one that even in my own lifetime was felt impossible. ***The history*** Closely following the first evidence of the concept of this amazing tunnel, English designer Henri Mottry developed his own design for the tunnel. Following the advent of steam train construction of the British railway network gave rise to ideas of the tunnel being designed ..." Read review
