In Paris for 5 days, is a day trip to London feasible?

Jump to last reply

My sister and I are going to be in Europe for 5 days (fly in the morning of the first day, and leave the morning of the 6th), flying into Paris from India (we are there for a wedding) and then leaving Paris for the US. This is our first time in Europe and it will probably be a while before we can afford to go back. We have been evaluating our options for day trips and we are having a hard time deciding. My sister is a huge BBC fan and would LOVE to see some of London. Which do you think would be best? Having a "ground" in Paris and just taking the train to London for a day? Or splitting our time- like 2 nights in London and 3 nights in Paris? I'm just thinking it may be more of a pain to cart all of our luggage to different hotels versus being able to leave it at a hotel and just traveling with a day pack. But regardless we would love to make it work!

We are also hoping to relax in Paris too-looking forward to cafes, museums, and wine! But we still want to see as much as we can! Versailles? Mont Saint Michel? Reims?

I know we will be jet-lagged, but we are ready to push through and experience as much as possible in the time we have.

Any recommendations on day trips (specifically to London) would be great!

Thank you
