If you haven’t booked yet
There are still seats available. You’ll just need to buy tickets from London St Pancras International or Ashford International and board or leave the train at one of those stations.

Don't worry, the train will still stop at Ebbsfleet as normal but it might be worth allowing a little extra time, since it'll be busy.

Engineering Works in Brussels from 1 to 3 November and from 9 to 11 November 2019

Tickets are now on sale for journeys between the UK, Calais, Lille and Brussels on Friday 1, Sunday 3 and Sunday 10 November.

There’ll also be a few small changes to the timetables on days either side of the works so that we can ensure our sets and crews are in the right places.

 

Revised Timetable.

 

All our other trains to and from Paris and Marne la Vallée-Chessy (Disneyland ®Paris) are planned to run as normal over this period.

Timetables for connecting services to the Netherlands and Germany via Thalys and DB Inter City Express (ICE) on these dates are also likely to be subject to change. For more details, please check directly with these operators.

Brexit and Eurostar services

Will there be changes to Eurostar’s service after Brexit?
We expect to maintain services on the existing basis, timetable and terms and conditions following Brexit. We are working closely with our station partners, Governments and border authorities on both sides of the Channel to ensure that robust plans are in place for us to continue to operate in either a deal or 'no-deal' scenario.
 
Will I need a visa to travel between the UK and the EU after Brexit?
The EU has agreed to give British citizens visa-free travel to member states, even in a no-deal scenario, for trips up to 90 days. The UK had previously confirmed that EU citizens will be able to make short-term visits to the UK without a visa.  
 
Can I still travel with my EEA ID card after Brexit? 
The UK government has confirmed that EU identity cards would remain valid for travel to the UK initially. Although there will be no immediate change, this cannot be guaranteed after the introduction of a new immigration system from 1 January 2021. Find out more.

Will there be any changes to the travel documents I need after Brexit?
Should the UK leave the EU without a deal, passports will be required to have six months validity from the date of arrival at your destination. The government has created an online tool to check if a passport needs to be renewed before travel.
