The Queen unveils 20th anniversary Channel Tunnel plaque

Thursday 5th June will always be the day Her Majesty The Queen came to St Pancras International.

Accompanied by His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh, she unveiled a plaque to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the opening of the Channel Tunnel and the launch of international high speed rail services between the UK and mainland Europe.

Since opening more than 65 million vehicles and 330 million passengers have travelled on services through the Channel Tunnel. That's a lot of holidays!
