- "Easy and relaxed journey." David l. 24/01/2014
Very convenient to be able to use Ashford International, I live in Kent and was home within 30 minutes of arriving at Ashford. I just wish more Eurostar trains stopped at Ashford.

We had decided to spend some time in Paris on our way to UK to visit family. The train trip from Paris to Ashford was convenient, comfortable. Better than flying. The early bird discounts make it good value for money.

Excellent way to get to UK. Much more civilised for us than flying to Heathrow or Gatwick.
