Eurostar to celebrate launch of new direct London to Amsterdam route, with inaugural journey on Tuesday 20th February.
The launch of the London to Amsterdam service marks a historic milestone in the expansion of international high speed rail travel. For the first time, passengers will be able to travel from St Pancras, in the heart of London, directly to the Netherlands at a speed of 300 kph in just three hours to Rotterdam and 3 hours 41 minutes to Amsterdam.
Thanks to the £1 billion investment in new state-of-the-art trains and enhanced connectivity on the European network, Eurostar passengers can now use fast, seamless rail connections between the UK and mainland Europe. The direct services from the UK to The Netherlands, France and Belgium brings Britain closer to mainland Europe, and to three of its top trading nations.
In addition, a Eurostar journey from London to Amsterdam emits 80% less carbon than the equivalent short haul flight making it a clear choice for the future of travel in Europe.
Eurostar’s new route to the Netherlands will start on 4 April 2018 with one-way fares from £35. The service will launch with two trains a day departing at 08.31 and 17.31 respectively.
The inaugural journey will provide a preview of the new service with opportunities for filming and media interviews with CEO, Nicolas Petrovic.
