Taking the Coach

A lot of people travelling to Paris might be inclined to take the Eurostar or travel by plane. However, journeying to the City of Lights by coach is a much more wallet-friendly option. And it’s so much more relaxing than taking the car!
Most coaches travel directly from London, an easy place for anyone living in the UK to reach, and journey times from London to central Paris average out at around eight hours, depending on your time of departure.

Organised Coach Trips

If you have a bit of time on your hands, you might like to consider a three or four day coach trip. There are plenty of options, most of which will include your return coach fare from London, ferry across the channel, accommodation for the duration of your stay, along with a full sightseeing programme to really make the most of your precious time in the city. The great thing about the longer tours is that you can often opt in or opt out of certain activities, or just take a half-day tour with the rest of the group and have an afternoon to yourself. Some additional activities may not be included in the price, but are usually around £20 for trips to the Palace and Gardens of Versailles, for example.

The benefits of guided tours are obvious – unless you wander off, you’re unlikely to get lost! And you tend to see all the major tourist attractions, along with some that are considered off the beaten track. So you do tend to get the most value for your time and money spent. Weekends tours are available if you are at work during the week, and start from around £150 based on two people sharing.

Paris by Coach

And if you’re looking for something for the kids to come along to, you can get similar deals travelling to Disneyland Paris, for weekends of family fun and frolics.

Independent Coach Travel

However, you could always organise a similar trip, but do it yourself. Book your own accommodation and see exactly what you want to see, when you want to see it. If you’re a more independent traveller and this sounds a bit more like something you’d do, try Eurolines, part of National Express coaches. Eurolines sell coach seats for as little as £15 one way, which usually include your ferry crossing fee.

Europe’s most visited capital city is, without a doubt, Paris. Paris is categorically one destination all couples should endeavour to visit at least once. Seeped in history, Paris offers even the most pernickety tourists a bit of much-needed romance. So let us help you book your coach trip today.
