We’re receiving thousands of calls and emails right now, and it’s taking longer than usual for us to reply to everybody. We’d strongly encourage you not to call our contact centre, but to check eurostar.com for all the latest info instead.  For any other requests or questions, you can use this contact us form. Apologies for the inconvenience caused.

Trains from Ashford to Brussels

Arriving at Brussels-Midi/Zuid

Eurostar trains arrive into the centre of town at Brussels-Midi/Zuid (Brussels South) station.

On arrival you’ve plenty of choice of public transport with STIB trams and metros, and the De Lijn or Tec bus networks.

Alternatively hop in a taxi or, if you’re feeling adventurous, why not walk – it’s only about 20 mins to some of the best shopping areas in town.

From 8 November, the temporary ticket office will be located between platforms 12 and 13. Please allow extra time to find it, or ask a member of staff to direct you. Or why not simply download the Eurostar app and use it to buy, exchange and store your tickets?

Multi-cultural Brussels

A true mélange of cultures, Brussels is where francophone Wallonia and Dutch-speaking Flanders meet, so prepare to order a Belgian waffle in French next to a Dutch-style guildhall.

Move over, moules-frites

When in Brussels you must try carbonade flamande, a deliciously rich beef stew. Then, tick off two favourites in one and order a glass of chocolate beer. Trust us – it’s exquisite.

A city for all seasons

Brussels boasts everything from music and flowers to art and craft, food and (naturally) beer.

Don’t miss the Manneken

No trip to Brussels is complete without a visit to the Manneken Pis, who from time to time has his modesty restored with anything from judo kit to a full Father Christmas outfit.
