Entry visa to UK via Euro Star for South Africans

If you have a visa to visit France and you want to take the Euro Star to London for a day, do you need a UK visa too?

I would guess so, but the only way to find out for certain would be to contact the British Embassy in your country.

Never, ever, ever take the advice of well-meaning strangers on an Internet forum on the subject of visas and entry into foreign countries.

Yes. Visitors' visas for France are issued under the Schengen Area rules, but the UK is not part of the Schengen Area and has its own visa rules.
