Discussion:
Eurostar question, will they let a Paris ticket on at Lille or Calais?

I have a friend with a return (I think) London to Paris to London
Eurostar ticket. It would save a lot of time and expense if she could
get on the return train at Lille or Calais.

First question - will this be allowed?

Second question, how do I find a 'proper' Eurostar timetable that shows
where the trains stop (if they do) on the way from Paris to London?

Yes, I think the Brussels trains need to have a French stop, as the
passport control in St Pancras is done by French officials. Also, they're
less busy, and so need the extra traffic.

For whatever reason, all of the Brussels trains stop at Lille, and
five from London and four to London also stop at Calais.

None of the Paris trains stop anywhere else in France, only at Ashford
or Ebbsfleet.

The one daily train to Disneyland stops at Lille, but the return
doesn't.

I remember taking a eurostar from Calais to Paris, but it was years ago...

Thanks, I'd sort of come to that conclusion myself but it's good to have
it confirmed. So the first part of the question is irrelevant!

One solution is to use the Deutsche Bahn travel planner and get it to show
intermediate stops.
