Chunnel tickets are very easy to get. You can order them online, through a travel agent, or wait until the last minute and purchase them in London, Paris or Brussels. If you wait until the last minute, you do run the risk of having to take the next available train. If you are traveling during the months of June, July or August, try to book at least a couple of days in advance.

Getting Chunnel Tickets

The fun thing about the Chunnel is that you can go between two of three major cities, London, Paris and Brussels, in just three hours. This allows you to take day trips. Who ever thought that you could be in London for 10 days and take a quick day trip to Paris? It's wonderful. In order for you to really take advantage of that trip, however, you will need to take the early train to Paris.

This means you will probably have to be on the train and ready to go by 5:15 a.m. You'll get three solid hours of sleep, though. The seats on the Chunnel are quite comfortable, no matter what class you are in. If you like, bring a little pillow with you. You'll arrive in Paris around 9:30 (it's an hour later than London). You will have about nine hours to see all the sights you want.

For art and history buffs, you must take a trip to the Louvre. Don't expect to see all the artwork in there, though; that could take weeks. Perhaps the most famous painting in the Louvre is the Mona Lisa. There are signs all over the place asking you not to take pictures, but in truth, you won't be able to tell where one flash bulb ends and another begins.
