Taking a Eurostar train from Brussels to London

Direct Eurostar trains from Brussels to London will whisk you from Belgium to the UK in the fastest journey time of just 2h 10m – that’s quick! Much quicker than flying when you factor in waiting times at the airport and transfers to and from the city centres.

There’s no need to worry if your travel plans change as well, you can now exchange your ticket for free up to 14 days before departure thanks to Eurostar’s new flexible tickets. You’ll just need to pay the difference in ticket price, although you won’t get a refund if your new ticket is cheaper.

Once you’re on board the Eurostar and whizzing your way over to London, you’ll enjoy comfortable leather seating, power sockets, free WiFi and onboard entertainment including TV shows, documentaries, and films.

Eurostar are still serving onboard food and drinks, so you won’t go hungry during your trip – they’ve just adapted the way they serve them to keep you safe. You can still get food and drinks from Café Métropole (Eurostar’s onboard bar buffet) and if you’re travelling in Standard Premier or Business Premier (First Class), you’ll get a complimentary meal.

When arriving into London St Pancras station, head towards the clock once you step off the train, as the exit is located in that direction. You’ll need your ticket handy, as you'll need to scan it to exit into the station. From here you can take one of 6 Underground lines, taxis, buses or a National Rail train to take you whichever attraction you want to visit first. Will it be Big Ben first? Or perhaps Buckingham Palace? All of the biggest and best hotspots are easily reachable in less than an hour.
