The station turned out to be easier to navigate than expected. So was getting into a taxi. What could be improved vis-a-vis the Eurostar experience is the area post immigration. There could be more eating options.

Talk about a busy station! Clearly what they say about Gare du Nord being one of the most bustling transport hubs is true. However, I think for the vastness of the station and the amount of commuters passing through on a daily basis, there needs...More

Eurostar is rip-off central, from the station in London - money changers who refuse to change smaller notes and lack of announcement information, to the taxi drivers at the other end in Paris who lie in order to take your euros from you - no,...More
