Travel from London to Amsterdam direct by Eurostar

Date Posted: 04/10/2013

Eurostar has announced a new direct service between London and Amsterdam from December 2016.

Eurostar plans to run two services a day between London and Amsterdam with journey times of around four hours.

Services will run via Brussels to Amsterdam stopping at Antwerp, Rotterdam, Schiphol Airport and Amsterdam Centraal.

Part of Eurostar’s ambitions to encourage passengers to choose high-speed rail over plane for short-haul European travel, the Eurostar service will feature its new e320 trains which will be interoperable and compatible with the Dutch high-speed signalling systems.

The London-Amsterdam route is reportedly the largest international airline market in Europe, attracting over three million business and leisure passengers.

With the arrival of this direct high-speed rail service between the UK and the Netherlands, school trip organisers will be able to take advantage of a convenient alternative to the airlines.
