Just wanted to run our plan through the experts to see if it sounds "do-able". Our party of 3 will be in Paris from 1/23 - 1/31 and then we are headed to London to stay with our friend until 2/5. When we made all the plans and reservations a few months back, obviously the restriction to go from Paris - London on the Eurostar without compelling reason didn't exist. What we've come up with as a work-around is to take a train from Paris to Brussels (to get out of France without restriction) and then transfer to the Eurostar in Brussels and take it to London.
Does anyone see any issues I may be missing in doing this? I can't find anything that shows any pre-requirements in leaving France for Belgium, since we'll be there less than 48 hours (only a few hours actually) and since UK doesn't require pre-departure testing, we should only need to schedule the 2nd day and fill out the locator form, right?
Thanks in advance!
