ENGLAND - FRANCE

The big hole in the ground between England and France is one the largest, costliest and most impressive pieces of major engineering completed in the 20th century. Some have called it one of the seven wonders of the modern age.

The project cost billions, and it is still very deeply in debt.

You can get you car across to England (or visa versa) for about 100 pounds, depending upon time of travel. There are also special offers from time-to-time.

You have to drive your car onto a train, before it zooms across in about 35 minutes. It all works very efficiently and smoothly.

Rather oddly, although foot passengers cannot use the service, those with bicycles can. You put the bike on the train and travel across ina minibus on the train. At 32 pounds return - that is good value.
