London St Pancras - Madrid Atocha
Take the 2pm Eurostar from St Pancras and change in Paris on to the trainhotel to Madrid, arriving at 9.15 next morning. Wake up to breakfast in the restaurant as the sun rises over distant snow-capped mountains. Journey time 19 hours, fares from £161 return including sleeper.

The longest journey that can be accomplished in a single day by the new service is London to Madrid. It means catching the 05.27 at St Pancras, reaching the Gare du Nord at 8.50, crossing Paris by Metro, and then taking the 10.10 from the Gare Montparnasse to Irún, changing there and reaching Madrid Atocha at 22.34. That is a long day.
