I 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...

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...

Quick, clean, cheap food and booze

You 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...

None 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...

It is getting to be that time of year again. I do travel regularly to Europe on business outside of the Summer peak period and enjoy touring the continent by car for a couple of weeks. All this cannot be done without crossing the Channel and this means about 12 channel crossings a year. I do tend...

“Not All its Cracked Up To Be”

published 10/11/2002

Quick, easy

Claustrophobic, hot, no facilties

Eurotunnel - it sounded so good, didn't it? Now the majority of opinions on Eurotunnel on this site give it 5 stars - the odd one giving it 3, and then one giving it 2. That guy's opinion didn't get a good reception, mainly because he didn't show enough points for not using Eurotunnel. I'm here...

***INTRO*** I live near Kings Cross-station the site for the international Eurostar terminal, succeeding Waterloo station its temporary site. So I decided to write a piece concerning the project and its service. There are 3 main operations: 1. Eurotunnel who are the operators who control the...

“All aboard Le Shuttle!!”

Faster than the ferries and no sea sickness!!

Can be expensive during school holidays, long wait...

Having travelled on the Shuttle quite a few times now, i would highly recommend it, especially if you want a short, sharp trip over to France to do some shopping. I can't stand Ferries very much, i tend to get sea sick, even if the sea is still as still can be!! Living in Kent, is an advantage to...

More expensive and no restaurants.

I have crossed the Channel on many occasions, both using the ferries and the Channel Tunnel. I prefer to use the Tunnel but I think that it is better to buy the tickets before you travel as I have found it cheaper than buying them at the terminus. Unfortunately there is no where to buy food and...

i have been through Euro Tunnel twice and i must say it was a strange experience. Not a bad strange experience just the whole idea of being so deep down in the ground beneath the sea was a little daunting at first. The only way i can describe actually going through the tunnel is that its like...

No sea view!

Our journey was conceived after our children watched a trailer about the channel tunnel and were amazed at two things. Firstly, that a car could drive onto a train and as if that wasn't incomprehensible enough, that a train could travel under the sea. Our half-term holiday destination and method...

Our family loves the Euro Tunnel, it is by far much better than taking the ferry. I have used the tunnel 4 times so far in all and have always been impressed. The last time we used the service was at the start of May and had arrived 3 hours early, we were just going to wait at the terminal...
