This Europe for Visitors article has general information on
Eurostar, including links to sites that describe the building of the English
Channel Tunnel and Eurotunnel's transportation of cars, campers, and caravans
between the UK and France.
The official Eurostar site has timetables and a "book online" journey planner,
but it can be frustrating to use. (Tip: Select the "UK" as your country of
residence if you live overseas. Fares will be converted into your local currency
when you charge to your credit card.)
If you live in the U.S., you may find Rail
Europe easier to deal with than Eurostar. Caution: Bargain fares don't
always show up on Rail Europe's pages, so also check Eurostar.com and convert
sterling fares into dollars to find the best deal.
