    Trip to Paris to propose

    Hi

    Thinking of proposing to my gf in Paris. We are planning to go to London to see the Royal Wedding on 29 April and she loves France and so I am thinking of 'whisking' her away to Paris in the evening to propose.

    Was wandering if the powers that be i.e. you, could help with any suggestions as to best/cheapest ways of getting there and any specific websites you would recommend.

    Would like to be close to the eiffel tower if poss however the metro system is great (or so I have heard). I have seen the eurostar for 69pp but wanted to ask if anyone had any experience of better deals?

    Looking to go on the Friday and come back on the Saturday (a short stay but we have to be at a friends wedding back in the UK on the Sunday).

    All thoughts welcome...

    awwww its nice to see that some men still make an effort! go for it hunni, cant recommend anywhere but wanted to wish you luck

    Euro star it from Central London to Paris, get a room from Laterooms.com (loads in Paris) and jobs a good one..!

    I have never used the Metro in Paris as i have always been in the car.

    I proposed at the top of the Eiffel Tower - got a huge round of applause, but its something my wife always talks about to others, so if she'd like it, go for it!

    Eurostar it if you are in London already St Pancras Easy to get to.

    Think cheapest is £89 return which is pretty good

    Also if you want to be near eiffel tower try

    taking her to paris is nice but finding the cheapest way possible kinda ruins it

    good thinking with the eurostar, can be a bit dangerous if you drive in Paris

    Thanks for the comments all, much appreciated.

    gbspurs - I would ordinarily agree but hey, sometimes its worth being that little bit 'gay'

    bassman - congratulations, sounds amazing and well done for doing it

    DaveLister - cheapest doesn't mean lacking in quality, it just means finding the best value for money way of getting there...happy to buy full price tickets, but why pay full price when you can pay half for the same thing?

    Lololololol

    Op: eurostar it. You'll not regret it, tis the best way by far. Found it quite difficult to find the metro Thingy at gard du nord but eventually got some ticket which lasted 3 days n let you go anywhere.

    Ps: don't be cheesy like baseman... Stay classy son, stay classy.
