London Paris

Jump to last reply

Hello everyone. We are considering a fall trip leaving New York Oct 8 to London, then Paris to New York on Oct 16th. I know it's a very short time frame for both, but that can't be helped. We need to travel during our kids fall break from school and they will miss a couple of school days as it is. We also have to fly into and out of Arizona to/from NY. I know this is convoluted, but we have miles we can use to get to NY and airfares were almost half as much from there to Europe.

My questions are as follows
We found a flight JFK to LGW with a one hour 20 min layover in Dublin on Air Lingus. How rushed will that be to make our connection ? We flew into Dublin a couple of years ago but I can't recall how crazy the airport was. Is that crazy to try to make that work? A similar scenario on the way back ,but flying out of CDG with a 2 hour layover Dublin which I am more comfortable with.
Second question
Any hotel suggestions for both places? We are a family of four ,two teenagers,two adults. We tend to like hotels for our first visit somewhere due to the availability of help at reception, maps , directions, recommendations. We would like to stay at $400 per night. Less would be even better.
Not sure what we want to do in London yet. Get a pint, and? Stonehenge would be wonderful,but since time is so short that's not likely.
Paris- the Louvre,see the Eiffel Tower( from a distance is fine) a beautiful garden, street market, flea market, get coffee and eat.

Third question
We want to take the train London to Paris. How early should we get tickets and how often do they run? I would imagine it's also a good idea to limit luggage?

Many thanks to any of those who take the time to respond and offer advice.
