2 for 1 Eurostar offer with THE INDEPENDENT

We are offering readers of The Independent and the Independent on Sunday a superb 2 for 1 offer on day return trips with Eurostar, for only pounds 125. When you pay for one standard day return ticket at pounds 125, to either Paris, Lille or Brussels, you will get another to the same value, free.

Eurostar is a service provided together by the railways of Britain, France and Belgium. Simply sit back, relax and in just over three hours you can travel from city centre to city centre, through the Channel Tunnel.

Travel to Paris and discover the splendour of the Sacre Coeur Basilica and the Notre Dame Cathedral; the richness of the Louvre Museum; the vibrancy of the Champs Elysees and the sheer scale of the awe inspiring Eiffel Tower.

Or why not visit Lille, the former capital of French Flanders. It offers a rich collection of architectural curiosities including the pentagonal Citadel fortress built by Vauban, and many enticing restaurants dotted around the city. Brussels holds plentiful attractions, ranging from historic sights to superb restaurants, stylish shops and cafes.

If you would like to stay a little longer in either Paris or Brussels, then you can make use of our second offer. With our Short Break, you can stay in a small, friendly hotel, right in the heart of Paris or Brussels.

Prices start from pounds 109 per person and include one nights accommodation (sharing a twin or double room); continental breakfast; return Eurostar travel and local taxes.

All the hotels have private facilities with easy access to either the metro or public transport. For Brussels, there are mid-week supplements for three and four star hotels upwards, from pounds 8 per person per night. Listed on this page are details of the hotels.
