Travellers and Eurostar staff on board of a Eurostar train

What’s on board?


Our direct trains starting on 26 October have all your needs covered. 

There’s a travel class to suit every budget and style, and with sockets at every seat and free wifi for all, you can stay in the loop all the way.

Read news, reviews and destination inspiration in Metropolitan, our onboard magazine. Or kick back and catch up on a TV show or film with our free onboard entertainment.

And if you get peckish en route, just stroll to Café Métropole, our onboard bar buffet, to pick up drinks, snacks and meals for any time of day – from flaky morning pastries to after-work aperitifs.

If you’re travelling in Standard Premier, you’ll enjoy a light meal and drinks served at your seat. And if you’re travelling all the way to London in Business Premier, you’ll enjoy a three-course meal designed with Raymond Blanc OBE. Bon appétit.


Good to know

Just so you know, some of our trains might need to stop at Brussels-Midi/Zuid for less than half an hour for border security reasons. This wait is scheduled into your journey time – so you won’t be late. You won’t be able to leave the train during the wait.

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


Taking an indirect train from Amsterdam to London


You can take a Thalys train from Amsterdam Centraal to Brussels-Midi/Zuid instead (it takes 1 hour 52 minutes) and then change on to a Eurostar train for the remainder of the journey.

Get off the Thalys train in Brussels then find the Eurostar departure area under platforms 1 and 2. When you get 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.


St Pancras station

Arriving at St Pancras International


Eurostar trains arrive right in the heart of London at the beautiful and historic St Pancras International. As well as lots of shops and restaurants, you’ll find six London Underground connections and buses to whisk you to London’s top museums and galleries where your Eurostar ticket gives you 2 for 1 entry to lots of exhibitions.
