The French police are known for "selecting" English registered cars for checks and on the spot fines for transgressors!
We use the eurotunnel a few times a year for visiting family so have become quite accoustomed to it. I much prefer it to ferries as it is much quicker and easier with small children.
We try to book a crossing for breakfast or lunchtime (depending on which way we are going) so that we can eat on there and it saves stopping again for a meal.
My words of advice would be to be aware that if you arrive early or late you get put onto the next available train, sometimes you may have to wait and other times you have to drive straight on. So if you were planning to buy anything in the shop you may not have time. Sometimes I have really fancied getting a burger king and not had time! So we always take some food/drinks for the kids in the car with us. There are toilets in the train so you don't have to worry about that.
There isn't much at the terminal on the uk side it's pretty much just like a service station, on the french side there is a big shopping centre next to it called City Europe, I've never been but my parents often stop there.
