Eurostar is launching its new route from London to Amsterdam in April, making it even easier to get to the popular destination.
The new route will be launched on April 4 and will start with two trains a day, with one-way fares from £35.
The journey will take around three hours, and return journeys will connect through Brussels as a temporary measure while the UK and Netherlands governments complete an agreement on passport checks.
The new route was hailed as an ‘historic milestone’ in the expansion of international high-speed rail travel.
Nicolas Petrovic, chief executive of Eurostar, said: “The launch of our service to the Netherlands represents an exciting advance in cross-Channel travel and heralds a new era in international high-speed rail.”
