Tilbury Port to St Pancras to take the Chunnel to Paris

We will be arriving into Tilbury Port. We then want to take the Chunnel to Paris. I understand we need to get to StPancras station. How do we do this? How far is it? Can we arrange private driver or take transportation from the Port.

Thank you in advance

From Tilbury Town station you have a couple of choices. You may take a c2c train to London Fenchurch Street and from there a taxi (if you will have a fair amount of luggage) to St Pancras for Eurostar ('chunnel' isn't used to describe Eurostar or EuroTunnel services).

You may also take a train from Tilbury to Stratford International and change there to the High Speed service to St Pancras station. The journey from Tilbury Town to Stratford involves a change at West Ham, but the journey from Stratford to St Pancras takes just six minutes, could be worth the faster journey.

Depending on when you plan to travel, planned works may mean trains from Tilbury Town will go to London Liverpool Street rather than Fenchurch Street; again a taxi from there to St Pancras would be needed unless you travelled from Stratford Interntional.

Please let us know when you plan to travel, day of the week and time of day as well as whether you'll be a party of two or more.

It woulds be quicker to catch the Eurostar from Ebbsfleet than from St Pancras, by both road and public transport its quicker.

Tilbury to Ebbsfleet by rail means travelling to Stratford International and changing there to the Ebbsfleet train. Travel time is about an hour and a quarter. Trains to Fenchurch Street take 40 minutes plus 15 minutes for taxi to St Pancras; trains to Stratford International take 50 minutes then another six to St Pancras.

Rail fares are about a tenner per person for off peak travel.

Can't think of a decent public transport route to Ebbsfleet even though it's only around 15 miles. So a taxi would be the best option

Unless this is a Sunday, ferry to Gravesend, taxi to Ebbsfleet. By far the quickest and cheapest way.

Would the Cruise Operator be able to organise transport for you?

3. You wouldnt do it by rail, you can do it by bus and ferry which would be quicker than the rail route you suggest via Stratford.
