Eurostar is getting in the romantic spirit this Valentine’s Day by running extra “Love Trains” between London and Paris - enabling travellers to find romance on board and also take time out in the City of Love - Paris.Eurostar has laid on the Love Trains thanks to high demand and the expected completion of Channel Tunnel repairs on 10 February. This has enabled the insertion of extra services into the timetable before the reintroduction of a full Eurostar service from 23 Monday 23 February.
Eurostar’s Communications Director, Simon Montague, said: “No recession can quell passion, whether it’s for cross-Channel romance or rugby union. A trip on Eurostar offers great pleasure and good value, and we’re hoping to spark new relationships between Britain and France, both on and off the field.
“It will be an eclectic mix of passengers on the Love Trains - and whether it’s a passion for a fellow passenger or the game ahead, we expect the atmosphere on board to highly charged.”
“Since the advent of Eurostar, there has arisen a new generation of relationships between the British and French that has come about because of the ease of keeping in touch. High-speed rail lets love blossom and this Valentine’s Day will see Britain and France coming even closer.”
