London to Amsterdam timetable

Arriving at the station

Get to St Pancras International 45-60 minutes before departure so there's plenty of time to go through security and passport control.

Once in the departure lounge you'll find shops to buy refreshments for the journey as well as newspapers and magazines.

What’s on board?

You won't be bored on board with Metropolitan magazine and our free onboard entertainment.

You can watch top shows from Amazon Prime, enjoy a film, or two, or get engrossed in a documentary. There are also kid's shows, games and Eurostar Odyssey – a virtual reality adventure on board.

There’s free wi-fi for everyone and a power socket at every seat – so you can keep your devices charged up.

Food and drinks are available from Café Métropole and, if you’re travelling in Standard Premier or Business Premier, you’ll get a complimentary meal.

Children under 16 cannot travel unaccompanied on our direct route to the Netherlands.

Arriving in Amsterdam

Please be sure to keep your ticket handy for arrival. You’ll need to scan it at the NS ticket gates to exit your destination station.

Looking for local information? You’ll find the Amsterdam Tourist Office outside the main entrance to the station in a traditional white wooden Dutch coffee house.

About your return journey

On the way back, take a Thalys train from Amsterdam Centraal to Brussels-Midi/Zuid.

Then, there's a quick change onto a direct Eurostar train from Brussels to London St Pancras International in under two hours. Our booking system will find the best possible price for your combined Thalys and Eurostar ticket.

To change at Brussels, hop off the Thalys train (don’t forget your luggage), then head to the ground floor. You’ll find the Eurostar departure area under platforms 1 and 2.

When you’re there, scan the barcode on your Eurostar ticket at the ticket gates, pass through security and passport control and you’re on your way again.

Exploring Amsterdam

Planning an Amsterdam break? It's easy to get around Amsterdam on foot, but it's far more fun on two wheels. So join the 800,000 other cyclists around town and explore some of the city's 400km of cycle paths.
