Trains to Ghent leave from St Pancras International. You’ll travel to Brussels with Eurostar and change to a local train to continue your journey.
Passport and luggage checks are done in London, so arrive at the station up to 30 minutes before your train is due to leave. Once through security you can walk straight on board to your allocated seat.
On your Eurostar train you’ll find plenty of luggage space at the entrance to each carriage and racks above your seat for smaller bags. Seats are spacious with foot rests, good leg room and fold-down tables.
Food and drinks are available in Café Metropole, our bar buffet, while Standard Premier passengers will be served a complimentary meal at their seat.
Your Any Belgian Station ticket covers your Eurostar journey to Brussels, plus the local train to Ghent.
At Brussels-Midi/Zuid, take the exit at the end of the platform down to the main station. The next trains to Ghent will be shown on the departure board.
No booking is required – just keep your Eurostar ticket, get on board and find yourself a seat.
Its winding medieval streets, quirky shops, great museums and a castle Count Dracula would eye with envy, make Ghent one of Belgium’s best-kept secrets.
