Direct Eurostar Netherlands – London

As of 1 October, Brexit is a fact. The United Kingdom is no longer part of the European Union and that has consequences for travel. For example, a European ID card is no longer accepted, a passport is mandatory.


Passengers should note that the check-in time is longer. Since 4 October, fully vaccinated travelers no longer need to take a COVID test before traveling to the UK. A PCR test is needed within two days after arrival. This test must be booked before travel. Each passenger has to complete a passenger locator form.*

Since 22 October,  a second direct Eurostar train service now runs from Amsterdam to London. Next to the Eurostar train departing at 13.47 from Amsterdam Central Station, a second train departs at 18:47. Only 4 hours and 10 minutes later, you will get off at London St Pancras, in the city centre of London!

*Please check the current schedule before your departure.
