We will need to travel from Amiens to London on Saturday, 14 June 2014. While we can go via Paris, Calais seems a shorter option and also a chance for us to see some different scenery. We can get a train from Amiens to Calais, arriving Calais Frethun at 9.16am, then change on to the Eurostar leaving at 10.01 from the same station. My queries are:
Do the Amiens - Calais trains usually run on time;
We will only have 45 minutes to change trains and go through any British immigration procedure - would this be enough time?
Our other option would be to take a train to Calais and then a ferry as foot passengers. Other than giving us an opportunity to see the White Cliffs of Dover, this would be a much longer option and I am uncertain about travel from the Dover ferry terminal to central London.
Any suggestions, answers would be most welcome.
