Ashford International Station provides regular high-speed services into London, as well as international services to Paris, Brussels and Lille. Originally built in 1842, the station has taken on many incarnations throughout the years, including a notable redevelopment in the early 1960s which saw the construction of two additional platforms and the replacement of most of the original buildings. Another substantial rebuild in the 1990s saw the station equipped to handle high speed lines, both into London and out towards continental Europe. Today, the station sees seven trains per hour into the capital, with four Eurostar services per day – three to Paris Nord and one to Brussels. International services exclusively use platforms 3 and 4, while domestic trains serve platforms 1, 2, 5 and 6. Ashford town centre is about half a mile to the north, and beyond it lie the Kent Downs, an Area of Outstanding National Beauty.
