The trip to Brussels takes just over two hours. At Brussels- Midi/Zuid you’ll change on to a Thalys train for the remaining 1 hr 52 mins to Amsterdam Centraal.
On the way back to London, as travellers will need to take a Thalys train from Amsterdam or Rotterdam to Brussels-Midi/Zuid and change onto a Eurostar train there.
At Brussels, they’ll need to go through security and passport control before boarding a direct train to St Pancras International. The second leg of their journey will take less than two hours.
There’ll be two trains from St Pancras International to Amsterdam Centraal per day: one in the morning and one in the afternoon. We’ll only be using our e320s on the route from London to Amsterdam, so travellers can enjoy free wi-fi all the way and dive into Eurostar Odyssey via our onboard entertainment platform.
Although travellers will need to change trains on the way back, we run up to ten trains from Brussels to London every day. So, the connection should be quick and smooth.
