Couple at St Pancras London Checking in

When to arrive at the station

There’s no need to check in for Eurostar, just scan your ticket at the ticket gate.

With Eurostar, border and luggage checks take place before departure, so we ask our passengers to arrive at the station early enough to complete them.

These timings are just for guidance and can sometimes change. It’s a good idea to download your ticket to check the most-up-to-date recommended arrival time.

IMPORTANT: Please come to the station early and not just before the ticket gates close. This will ensure that you have enough time to go through all checks before your train departs.
