Paris is 2,5 hours far from London by Eurostar. However, since the Eurostar does not allow pets onboard, if you wish to travel with your dog you have to opt for a 5,5 to 7 hours long journey and give up the comfort of a superfast direct train.

On 13-14 August, Argo the dog and I travelled from London to Venice by train, via Folkestone, Calais and Paris. Being the two of us, I had prepared a very essential backpack (my other stuff would have been carried by my husband by plane). In addition, since tying Argo out of shops, restaurants, etc., was out of question, I figured that I would have to find dog friendly places where to buy food and drinks and toilets with room enough for us both. Considering that we had a few spare hours in Paris before catching the next train from another station, I had also put together a Paris dog guide for our afternoon in the Ville Lumière (which I will publish in the next blog post).
In this post you will find 7 takeaways from our travel, followed by a review of our journey, with tips and information that hopefully will come in handy for your own trip.
