Eustostar Terminal - shocking for food and drink but they are trying to improve it!

The check in and passport control are efficient enough but once through that there is very little..... a tiny 'shop' to get a beer and a baguette, a small 'pop up' coffee vendor... read more

The check in and passport control are efficient enough but once through that there is very little..... a tiny 'shop' to get a beer and a baguette, a small 'pop up' coffee vendor and a few small kiosks for wine and a few gifts.... so, best eat and buy any last minute presents before you get through! It looks like... More

I always like arriving at the Gare du Nord as it effectively signals one's arrival in the French capital and there is always a real buzz about the place. Some people might be put off by the groups of young soldiers walking round with machine guns casually slung over their shoulders but sadly it's a sign of the times. On... More

I think I've spent too much time at this station. Very busy. It's where the Eurostar arrives and departs. Also a huge terminus for suburban RER so lots of people all the time. Many Metro lines converge here. I like some of the restaurants in the area, especially the Indian and Pakistani ones. It's an important immigrant neighborhood. The station... More

If you travel to Paris on the Eurostar you will visit this rail station. The contrast to the english terminal at St. Pancras could not be greater. It is dirty poorly run etc etc.

Gare Du Nord is a central station in Paris with the best possible connectivity in the city. It has enough food joints , pay for use toilet and Metro /Tram/ and long distance connectivity . You might hear that nearby area is not good, but I would not consider it bad. Decent small hotels nearby as well. Tip : It's... More

The only reason I'm giving 3 stars is because of the pay bathrooms. Spent 3hrs on a train and had to use the bathroom to find you need .80 to use it.

sadly, apart from flying, there is very little choice, so far 5 yrs I have been travelling at premium prices with eurostar. Could not be worse. Both lounges at Euston or Gard Du Nord are awful and outside of these rarified environments overcrowded, poor shops.. Seats and compartments are the usual drab and at times overcrowded, Wifi not working, magazine... More

Do not even think about arriving early and expecting a seat or anything decent to drink or eat. Stay outside. Very poor, dirty and badly laid out.
