We leave London today bound for Paris with a heavy heart. We do love London & the Cotswold and wish we would be back soon. We will be taking the Eurostar from St Pancras, London arriving Paris at Gare Du Nord. Travelling time will be 2 hours 21 minutes arriving Gare Du Nord at 2:52 p.m.
In Paris, we had booked Hotel Richmond which is just across the street from Gare Du Nord. It’s hardly one minute walk from the exit of the station. We had chosen this hotel as we will be traveling to Amsterdam by train via Gare Du Nord. The location of this hotel avoids us from the need to take the metro, as Paris metro stations rarely have escalators and has many staircase going up & down unlike London’s tube. If you have big or heavy luggage, I advise you take a taxi. Don’t tire and frustrate yourself and curse unnecessarily. You’re on holiday.
For Muslim travelers, there are a number halal restaurants around Gare Du Nord. The nearest is to your right exiting the hotel about three shop lots away.
