BRUSSELS: THE WAY TO WW1 HISTORY IN BELGIUM 

With a quick change in Brussels, you can explore the scenes of the First World War across Belgium, including Ypres, Bruges, Ghent, Antwerp, Mons and over 500 other Belgian destinations. You’ll find day trips to Ypres and the battlefields from most cities in Belgium.

World history is just a few hours away

You can get from the heart of London to the heart of Brussels in just two hours, from just £69 return.

If you're travelling with Eurostar from London, add an Any Belgium Station (ABS) ticket to your Eurostar one. When you arrive at Brussels-Midi/Zuid station, just change platforms and get one of the frequent InterCity or regional trains for your onward journey.

Eurostar + Any Belgian Station tickets

You can book them both at eurostar.com. It’s flexible, so you can catch any regional train to any Belgian destination, and you can even take some time to explore Brussels before you catch your connecting train. In fact, you’ve got until midnight the day after you arrive by Eurostar before you need to head to your final Belgian station.
