How long does it take to travel on the Chunnel train from Paris to London?

Answer

The Channel Tunnel train, known as the Chunnel train, traveling from London to Paris takes less than two-and-a-half hours. According to Rail Europe, the train can reach the speed of 186 mph as it travels across southern England, under the English Channel, and across France.

The official name of the train that travels through the tunnel connecting these two cities is Eurostar. The Channel tunnel itself is 31 miles long, and it was opened in May 1994. However, the project was proposed as early as 1802, but it was not until 1988 that the tunnelling actually started. As of 2014, the Chunnel carries train service to passenger and freight trains.
