    Hi SK Lee,

    A connection from Glasgow to Paris takes at least about 8 hours in duration and involves connecting in London along the way.

    Trains from Glasgow to London are Virgin West Coast trains, and the trains from London to Paris are Eurostar trains.

    You would purchase tickets by searching a route under 'BOOK TRAIN TICKETS' on the homepage of our website, www.raileurope.com.

    For your trip from Glasgow to Paris, you would just break up your search once in London. Therefore, you would do one search from Glasgow to London and then another search from London to Paris.

    When you pull up the results of these searches, you will see that trains from Glasgow to London arrive into the London Euston station, while trains from London to Paris depart from the St Pancras International station. To get from Euston to St Pancras, you would take the Victoria Line or the Northern Line of the Tube. The Tube ride only takes about 5 minutes, but you would still want to allow yourself at least about 1.5 hours between your arrival from Glasgow and your departure to Paris. You would pay to board the Tube right there at the station.

    The Eurostar (London-Paris) is different from other trains in that passengers must check-in at least 30 minutes before departure.

    Generally, trains in the UK can only be booked once within 90 days of an intended departure, while the Eurostar can be booked 6 to 9 months in advance of a departure. The best rates on the Eurostar can sell out very quickly, so it is recommended that the tickets be purchased as soon as possible.
