Take the train to the Netherlands

There’s so much more to the Netherlands than windmills, tulips and cheese. Renowned for being pancake-flat, the Netherlands is a hotbed of world-class art, exciting culture, and forward-thinking architecture. And now, it’s a doddle to get there from St Pancras International.

Our daily trains run direct from London to Amsterdam via Rotterdam. It takes just 3 hours 52 minutes to get to Amsterdam Centraal, and only 3 hours 13 minutes to get to Rotterdam Centraal.

And it’s now even easier to get home again, with direct trains from Amsterdam Centraal arriving in London in 4 hours 09 minutes while trains from Rotterdam take 3 hours 30 minutes.

Trains go direct from city centre to city centre. There’s no hidden charges for luggage or limits on liquids and there's never been a better time to take the train.

If our direct train times don’t suit you on the way home, you can take a Thalys train from Amsterdam Centraal or Rotterdam Centraal to Brussels-Midi/Zuid. When your train arrives in Brussels, you’ll need to go through security and have your passport checked before you hop on a Eurostar train back to St Pancras International.

With its canals, cobblestone quays, buzzing art scene and kamikaze cyclists, Amsterdam is the perfect city for a weekend of culture, festivals and of course beer.
