This is the first time I had used the Eurostar from St Pancras. The station was much, much better than the facilities at the old Waterloo terminal, however, even though its a faster line, because the train has to go way out east before it can start going south, the train journey time was a little longer than I had expected.
Apart from that it was a good experience - left on time and arrived on time.
The actual carriages are starting to look a bit old and worn though - looked like they were overdue a bit of a fabric overhaul and it all felt a little grubby - more like a commuter train from the 1980's than a top end fast train of the 2000's.
Definitely use it again though and would recommend it. We got tickets around £60-£70 each way which is pretty good.
