Just for those of you that have never travelled to France by way of the train beneath the English Channel  This is one of the many long trains that you board and then drive down the length of the train on either the upper or lower deck, until its full.  I prefer the lower, as the upper deck sways a little once they get going 🙂

Details……The Channel Tunnel is a 50.5-kilometre rail tunnel linking Folkestone, Kent, in the United Kingdom, with Coquelles, Pas-de-Calais, near Calais in northern France, beneath the English Channel at the Strait of Dover.

  1. Thanks, I haven’t seen that before. Looks a little strange to see a car driving on to a train. What’s it like inside? I suppose you just stay in your car for the trip? I remember when they were building it there were a lot of people who said it would never work. Technology sure has come a long way!

    1. Pat, you are not allow to take photos inside, messes with the train or something. It is sectioned up by the use of doors, you can open and close small doors to one side of the main doors. You are advised to stay in you car, but you can get out if you want too, theres not a lot of room down the sides of the car for walking. Its strange when you see huge lorries going on. Its fast but I still like the ferry trip 🙂

  2. I’ve never travelled this way so it’s interesting to see! I’m with Pat on this one – it looks a bit claustrophobic! I’ve gone on ferries loads of times – but with them, you can get up on deck!

    1. Its not really claustrophobic, just sounds like it. I’ve been on it quite a lot now, it only takes about 30 mins in the tunnel it self and I hate tunnels, but its quite fun 🙂

    1. I’m glad you have found it interesting, its a tough one for me, I hate tunnels and this one is going until the channel, but I try not to think about 🙂
