Luxury Break to Paris by First Class Rail: Holiday Highlights

valentine's day first class rail holiday 2016

Stunning and stylish Paris is the perfect short break destination by rail

This most romantic of cities boasts an abundance of iconic monuments, world-class museums, gastronomic restaurants and chic boutiques, all framed by elegant tree-lined boulevards and the mesmeric river Seine.

Whether you are enticed here by the romance of the Île St. Louis, the grandeur of the Louvre, the vibrancy of the Champs Elysées, the more bohemian Quartier Latin, the audacious modernity of the Centre Pompidou or the imposing and unique Eiffel Tower, Paris will beguile you with its gallic charm.

Paris is one of those fabulous cities that reveal a different aspect at every turn, leaving the visitor with wonderful memories and an overwhelming desire to return time after time.

3 night holiday by First Class rail staying at the welcoming Hotel Balmoral (4 star) from £595 per person (based on 2 people travelling together), based on a departure date in January. 


Paris by First Class Rail: Holiday Itinerary

Day 1 – London to Paris

Your short break begins at stunningly restored St. Pancras International station. Let the holiday mood take over as you board the Eurostar service for the high-speed journey to Paris in little over 2 hours. Sit back and relax in your spacious Standard Premier Class seat and make the most of the light meal and drinks.

On arrival in Paris a private transfer will take you to your hotel for the next 3 nights, the welcoming Hotel Balmoral (4 star), ideally located in central Paris. Take a stroll from your hotel and find yourself on the pulsating Champs Elysées, among the chic boutiques of the rue de Rivoli or amidst the tranquillity of the Jardin des Tuileries. This evening choose from the myriad of wonderful gastronomic restaurants or a cosy bistro for dinner

Days 2 & 3 – Incomparable Paris

Take some time to plan your days over a leisurely breakfast to ensure you make the most of this magnificent city. You may decide to explore Paris on foot and wend your way along the river Seine past the charming Île St. Louis and onto the Rive Gauche.

Perhaps soak up some culture with a visit to the treasures of the marvellous Louvre, including the Mona Lisa, feast on the impressionist spectacle at the Musée d’Orsay or revel in the inimitable Centre Pompidou. Alternatively seek out the quieter streets of the Marais or head for the city’s elegant stores and colourful markets. In the evenings you may prefer the welcome of one of Paris’ traditional, evocative brasseries for dinner.


Day 4 – Free-time in Paris and homeward bound

After breakfast why not take a trip up the Eiffel Tower or along the river Seine aboard one of the Bâteaux Mouches (payable locally), alternatively wander among the classy streets and stylish shops of Paris’ 1st arrondissement.

Your private transfer to the Gare du Nord heralds the start of your journey home and time to bid au revoir to France’s capital city. Here you join the Eurostar service and head for home. Take time to reflect on the magnificent sights, sounds and tastes you have enjoyed on your short break to Paris, as you sit back and relax with a light meal and drinks before your arrival into London St Pancras.
