Direct trains from Amsterdam to London

You can now travel direct from Amsterdam to London, with no need to go via Brussels for border control. All security checks now take place at Amsterdam-Centraal, making the journey super-easy. Simply kick back and relax – with free WiFi and plug sockets on board, you won’t be short of entertainment!

Eurostar operate the newest trains in their fleet on the Amsterdam-London route – e320 trains. At over 390m in length and capable of speeds of up to 300km/h (186 mph), they’re a real treat to travel on. The train consists of 16 coaches: 10 Standard coaches, and 6 coaches with a mixture of Business Premier and Standard Premier seats.

Seating and catering

Standard seating is spread across the middle of the train, in coaches 4-13. There are a handful of double-tables in each coach, but most seats face the seat in front. You’ll share an EU and UK plug with the seat next to you, which are located underneath the seat. Free WiFi is available throughout the train and the on-board café-bar is back in business, plus you’re welcome to bring your own food on board.

Business Premier and Standard Premier coaches are located at the ends of the train, so if you’re in coaches 1, 2 or 3, prepare for a decent walk to your coach! Business Premier is Eurostar’s answer to First Class: leather seats and a complimentary meal come as standard, and you’ll have access to the lounge at St Pancras station. Business and Standard Premier seats also have USB sockets, allowing you to charge multiple devices on the go. Standard Premier is a more affordable version of Business Premier – it doesn’t allow lounge access – but is still plenty comfortable.

Accessibility

The e320 trains also have improved accessibility for wheelchair users and travellers with reduced mobility. There is priority seating in every coach, and there are 4 wheelchair spaces across coaches 3 and 14. These carriages also contain accessible toilets and companion seats. Friendly Eurostar will be on hand if you need a bit of help boarding the train.

Flexible tickets available

All Eurostar tickets are now exchangeable for free up to 14 days before the departure date. If your travel plans change, you can swap your tickets for a later train and pay the difference if the new fare is more expensive. Unfortunately, Eurostar cannot refund the difference for cheaper tickets. Use our Journey Planner to search for cheap tickets, and keep an eye out on our Deals & Discounts page for Eurostar promo sales!
