Trains between Brussels and Germany - 29 April to 1 May 2017

If you’re changing trains in Brussels to travel to or from Germany over the May Day bank holiday, your journey might be affected by engineering works near Brussels Midi/Zuid.

For three days, ICE trains between Brussels and Aachen, Cologne and Frankfurt will depart from and arrive at Brussels Nord station. You’ll therefore need to take one of the regular Intercity services to make the transfer between stations.

This is just a 10-minute hop from Brussels-Midi/Zuid on an Intercity train, and your Eurostar ticket will cover this transfer. You can check the Intercity timetables at 

Over the same period, Thalys trains that normally run between Brussels, Aachen and Cologne will depart from and arrive at Liège Guillemins.

Timetable changes on Sunday 8 October 2017

Unfortunately we’re not taking bookings for Sunday 8 October at the moment as engineering work will be taking place on the points in the Channel tunnel that day.

Once we know more about the work being done, we’ll update our timetables and put tickets on sale.

Please check nearer the time for further updates.

Check before you Travel – our Timetables are Changing

Between 23 January and 23 April 2017 our Paris and Brussels timetables will be changing a bit because of engineering works on part of the French high-speed line between Lille and Paris.

If you regularly take a particular train to Paris, just bear in mind that it might arrive a few minutes later than usual. Please double-check the details on your ticket before you travel, or when you’re booking.

Travelling from London to Paris at 20:01 Monday-Friday?

From 23 January until 21 April (except Monday 17 April) the weekday 9054 20:01 departure from London will depart approximately 30 minutes earlier. Click here to see the new timings.

Your tickets and booking confirmation may not show the earlier departure time so please ensure you arrive at the station with enough time for check-in and boarding.

Travelling from London to Calais, Lille and Brussels at 19:34 on Fridays?

For operational reasons, the 9158 19:34 departure from London will leave at 20:04 on Friday evenings until 21 April and arrive in Calais, Lille and Brussels 30-40 minutes later than usual. Click here to see the new timings.

We apologise for any inconvenience that these two changes may cause but hope that this advance warning allows you to minimise any disruption to your plans.

Looking long-term

These maintenance projects are essential to keep our trains running reliably and on time in the future, so we’d like to say thank you for your understanding.


Travelling to Disneyland Paris from Ebbsfleet International?

Travelling to Disneyland Paris from Ebbsfleet International?

We’ve now stopped selling tickets from Ebbsfleet International on our direct service to Disneyland® Paris on:

  • Sunday 28 May 2017
  • Monday 29 May 2017
  • Monday 5 June 2017

This is to stop the departure lounge there getting too full, but you can still travel from London or Ashford.

If you haven’t booked yet
There are still seats available. You’ll just need to buy tickets from London St Pancras International or Ashford International and board the train at one of those stations.

If you’ve already booked tickets from Ebbsfleet International
Don't worry, the train will still stop at Ebbsfleet as normal but it might be worth leaving a little extra time to check in, since it'll be busy.


No step-free access at Ashford International from 23 August to 10 October

From 23 August to 10 October, our lifts will be getting a service so they can continue to smoothly take travellers to and from our platforms.

Unfortunately, this means there’s no step-free access during this time.

We’re very sorry for the inconvenience, and hope this advance warning helps you to minimise any disruption to your plans.
