I'm looking into booking a trip to Paris for a long weekend with my wife and have a couple of queries:
1. For a long weekend is it better (more convenient, cheaper, shorter etc) to fly or take the Eurostar? We live in manchester so are about 2 hours from London on the train or 15 mins drive to Manchester airport.
2. If flying is the best option which company offer the best times (i.e. maximum time in Paris compared with days off work)
3. Any hotel recommendations would be good. I'd ideally like small to medium sized hotel, something with a bit of character (not generic "could be anywhere" chain hotel).
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
