Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to get to London by ferry?

It takes about 10 hours to travel from Paris to London by ferry because you first have to take a train from Paris to Calais, then the ferry across the English Channel with a view of the White Cliffs of Dover. Finally, you must end the trip with a second train from Dover to London. The actual ferry portion of the trip takes around 1 hour 30 minutes.

Can you do a day trip to London from Paris?

A day trip to London from Paris is very possible thanks to the train that passes through the “Chunnel” in the English Channel, which takes only 2 and a half hours each way. If you’re interested in saving money and taking the bus, though, a day trip to London isn’t worth it — bus trips take at least 7 hours each way.

Can you take the Chunnel from Paris to London?

Yes, you can take the Chunnel from Paris to London. In fact, other than flying, the Chunnel is the fastest travel option for getting across the English Channel — you’ll be underwater in the Chunnel for just over 30 minutes.

Is it safe to travel by coach from Paris to London during the COVID-19 pandemic?

Our coach partners have implemented several different policies to keep you safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. From limiting vehicle capacity to enhancing cleaning protocols and upgrading air filters, coach carriers are committed to maintaining a safe environment. For details on what each company is doing to ensure their fleet remains safe for travel, click here.

In addition, federal law requires all coach passengers to wear a face covering for the entire duration of the trip. Please make sure you are wearing a face mask or you may not be allowed to board the coach.
