Train beats plane for most journeys to the French capital. Eurostar’s terminus in Paris, besides being the busiest station in Continental Europe, is also a “destination station” in its own right, like St Pancras in London. Building work on the present structure of la gare began 150 years ago this summer.

See more of the station in Simon Calder’s latest travel video, above.
