/ Boulder mats ok on Eurostar?
Does anyone have experience of taking boulder mats on the Eurostar (London to Paris)?
I've seen on the website that there are some luggage limitations, including 85cm maximum length... but I've heard contradictions from one or two friends who've successfully taken large pads on the train in the past.
I'd just like to know what to expect when I turn up at St. Pancras station!
So, any problems expected, or will we just be waved through?
Come on UKC, don't let me down!
I've taken a mat on the Eurostar in the past. Security mainly seemed concerned it would fit through the scanner (mine did, so I didn't have a problem).
Thanks, both stories are similar to what I heard. It does give me a bit more confidence so I guess we'll just turn up with the mats!
