We are running fewer trains than normal on the morning of Sunday 18 June due to engineering works on the UK high-speed line.
If you’re looking to buy a ticket to travel that morning, please note that:
- no trains will run from London before 10:00
- some departure or arrival times are different to our usual Sunday timetable
I’ve already bought a ticket to travel on that day. Will my journey be impacted?
Our revised timetable was confirmed before tickets went on sale, so your train is scheduled to run at the times shown on your ticket.
To help Ukrainian nationals travelling to the UK, we can offer a free Eurostar ticket from any Eurostar station to London St. Pancras International.
If you have a valid visa to enter the UK, along with your Ukrainian passport, please speak to a member of the Eurostar team at Paris Nord, Brussels-Midi, Lille Europe, Rotterdam Centraal or Amsterdam Central stations, and they will issue a ticket for travel to London.
It is important to arrive with the necessary visa documents, as these will be checked by the UK Border Force during the check-in process.
At Amsterdam Centraal and Rotterdam Centraal, there are ticket gates between the station entrance and the Eurostar departures building. When you reach the gates, please press the assistance button, or speak to a nearby member of station staff who will let you through the gates. Then, head straight to the Eurostar departures building located at the end of platform 15b in Amsterdam Centraal, and in the middle of platform 2 in Rotterdam Centraal. Your Eurostar ticket to London will be issued at the Eurostar departures building.
The UK government is regularly reviewing the criteria for Ukrainian refugees to enter the UK, so we would strongly recommend contacting the British Embassy or checking the UK government website for the latest information.
All train operators across England, Scotland and Wales are offering free onward travel if your final destination is outside London. To qualify, you will need to show your Ukrainian passport and your Eurostar ticket, and you will have 48 hours from arrival in the UK to complete your journey.
