The tunnel that changed Europe forever

In the 25 years since it opened, the Channel Tunnel has been hailed as wonder of the modern world and become a vital link between the UK and mainland Europe.

Pulling out from beneath St Pancras’s magnificent wrought iron roof, the Eurostar slipping through tunnels towards the Kent countryside, it’s easy to feel blasé about taking a train from London to mainland Europe.

Likewise, driving onto a dedicated train Eurotunnel Le Shuttle service near Folkestone for a 35-minute ride to Calais, far quicker than using a ferry across the English Channel, is now seen as completely normal.
