From the gardens of Kent past the white cliffs of Dover, the battlefields of the Somme, and the horseracing country in Chantilly, the railway journey from London to Paris takes you through some of the most historic and culturally significant countryside in the world. Chock-full of captioned maps and vintage photos, this guide takes in all of the major stops along the way, with short, readable chapters on such topics as 19th century London, the literature of northern France, how the railways were used in World War I, the Gare du Nord terminal, and the creation of the Chunnel. Pack this slim, lightweight book for your European vacation—or just keep it on your nightstand.
