Getting to Britain

Eurotunnel Shuttle trains to the UK

Drive through Europe - the fastest way to cross the Channel by car.

What is Eurotunnel Le Shuttle?

Eurotunnel Le Shuttle is the unique service running a twinned railway tunnel under the English Channel that links Folkestone in Southern England with Coquelles in the Nord Pas-de-Calais, France.

After checking in and going through passport controls, customers drive onto the shuttle, switch off their engines and sit in the comfort of their own vehicle for the short 35-minute crossing. The shuttle allows passengers to experience this simple and efficient service with their vehicles 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
