Now that Eurostar is introducing a new quiet zone onboard its trains, those two and a bit hours can finally be enjoyed far from the madding crowds that can be other people's children, or just an army of pink-clad girls heading to Paris for a hen-do. From September this year, all Eurostar trains will have a quiet coach facility. Passengers booking Business and Standard Premier tickets for travel from 11th September onwards can choose a seat at no extra cost in a dedicated quiet coach at the time of booking. This service is being introduced in direct response to customer requests for the option of a quieter environment in which to work or wind down during their journey.
Eurostar trains however aren't the only subject of change, but St Pancras International is about to get even swankier with a flurry of events scheduled this month. The events include afternoon tea, beer tasting, cocktail parties, pastry chef workshops, live music and spa treatments.
