The station is in the heart of the city of Paris, it has a beautiful facade and is ideally placed for easy access to some of the city's favourite attractions.


The station was built in the late 1800's and is an exceptional building, far too grand some might think,to house rolling stock but then we are in Paris!

During early reconstruction the original facade was replaced and according to 'Wikipedia' transferred to Lille. The support pillars, due to there size, had to be manufactured in Glasgow, Scotland.
