Splitting time between London and Paris.

I have 8 full days to split between London and Paris, how many days should I spend in each. Or do I have time to fit in another destination?

Even if you spent 4 days in each you could only possibly scratch the surface in each city, so IMO you certainly can't fit in another destination.

Sorry...... I would spent it all in Paris and take in one or two sites outside of Paris (Versaille and Loire ie,!) !

On the occasions that we've done 10-11 day London / Paris '..splits..' we've weighted our stay toward a day or two more for Paris....and always wished we had at least a couple more days for Paris.

Given that you '..lose..' the better parts of '..days..' for arrival and departure and for a Eurostar transfer between Londaon & Paris, 8 days ain't quite as long as it seems. It might be in your interest to plan to make an early evening Eurostar transfer from London to Paris...to stretch out your time in London and maximize your time in Paris. A side-benefit of this is that hotel rates in Paris will tend to be significantly lower than in London.

'..Tinker..' with your proposed itinerary a bit to see what you can work out (bearing in mind inbound & outbound flight arrival and departure times)....predicated on your own personal preferences, priorities and budget...and don't discount the possibility of adding an extra day or two to your itinerary.
