Trains from London 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 London St Pancras International.

Our new twice-daily train runs direct from London to Amsterdam via Rotterdam. It takes just 3hrs 41mins to get to Amsterdam Centraal, and only 3hrs 1min to get to Rotterdam Centraal. Ticket sales now open.

The train goes direct from city centre to city centre. There’s no hidden charges for luggage or limits on liquids, and with a Eurostar journey from London to Amsterdam emitting 80% less greenhouse gas emissions (per passenger) than the equivalent short-haul flight, there's never been a better time to take the train.

On the return journey, you’ll need to take a Thalys train from Amsterdam Centraal or Rotterdam Centraal to Brussels-Midi/Zuid.  On arrival at Brussels Midi/Zuid, you’ll need to go through security and have your passport checked before you hop on a Eurostar train back to St Pancras International.

Getting from London to the Netherlands by rail has never been easier. So, sit back, relax and let us whisk you away.
