Train Timetable - Is this realistic?

Jump to last reply

We arrive at Gatwick 9:00 a.m. on a weekday in June and taking the Eurostar to Paris later that day. Thinking of this:

Arrive 9:05 a.m.
Allow 2 hours for passport clearance, customs and luggage retrieval.
Catch Thameslink direct to St. Pancras Station somewhere between 11:00 and 11:30, depending upon customs/luggage. (arriving 13:30 at the latest).
Based on this scenario, this will put us at St Pancras 60 minutes ahead of a 13:30 Eurostar to Paris.

I've read where we should allow 90 minutes at St Pancras. Am I pushing making the 13:30 train or do I have enough wiggle room built in? I'm thinking of being ultra safe and booking the 14:20 train, but it's more expensive and puts us into Paris later, where we have very limited time (overnight). Would that be overly cautious?
