Today is Eurostars busiest day for departures with over 13,000 people travelling to Europe and 142,000 passengers travelling on the Eurostar in total over the Bank Holiday Weekend.
This is an 8% rise on last year. Of course, Paris is the most popular destination with 24,000 people heading there.
The high-speed train is a great way to travel as it offers free wifi, on-board entertainment, and a generous baggage allowance. It makes it so easy to travel abroad.
