Trains from Amsterdam to London

eurostar train on the move

Planning on getting the Eurostar from Amsterdam to London? With our daily direct trains running from one capital city to another, you’ll leave behind the tight cobbled streets of Amsterdam and swap them for some, well, tight cobbled streets in London – depending on where in London of course.

And with direct journey times of just 4 hours 09 minutes, you’ll be in London in no time. Plus, there’s no hidden charges for luggage or limits on liquids. Travelling from Amsterdam to London really couldn’t be simpler.

Our Amsterdam to London Eurostar trains leave from the beating heart of the city, Centraal Station, and travel right to the centre of London, terminating at London St Pancras International.

Amsterdam

Departing from Amsterdam Centraal

 

When travelling on the train from Amsterdam to London, please arrive at our recommended arrival time to allow plenty of time to get through border controls and security before your train’s due to leave. Once you’re there: 

 

• Find the Eurostar departures building at the end of platform 15b. Once there, you’ll need to show your ticket and pass through security before moving to a waiting area.

• Our ticket checks stop 30 minutes before your train departs (or 20 minutes beforehand for Business Premier passengers and Carte Blanche holders).

• To reach the departures building on platform 15b, you’ll need to scan your ticket at the earlier NS ticket gates.

Please make sure to download your mobile ticket or print it before your journey. A service fee of €5 is charged for printing tickets in the ticket office in the Netherlands.

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.

Taking an indirect train from Amsterdam to London

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.
