London to Amsterdam with Eurostar

London to Amsterdam with Eurostar

With London to Amsterdam trains operating again from 9 July 2020, here's everything you need to know about taking the Eurostar train from London to Amsterdam.

Travelling from London to Amsterdam direct on Eurostar

There are lots of myths about Amsterdam and one of the biggest is that it is only possible to get there easily from the UK by flying. Or taking a long bus journey. Since Eurostar introduced a new route between London and Amsterdam in 2018, you can now travel between these two cool cities in a way that doesn’t involve airports, excess carbon emissions or, indeed, excess luggage costs. Also, travelling by train between London and Amsterdam means that you go straight into the heart of both cities. Note that although it is a direct train journey between London and Amsterdam, you do have to change trains in Brussels for security and passport control. You may also be interested in our blog Travelling on Eurostar - everything you need to know. But do get in quick to find some bargain fares. At 4 hrs 10 mins. between London and the Dutch capital, Dam, it’s good.


Day trips from Amsterdam

The train network in the Netherlands is superb, so do think about building in other towns into your visit. Delft, for example, is just an hour from Amsterdam, has a lot fewer visitors but plenty of charm, canals and cycle routes. The Hague is just 50 mins from Amsterdam and a place that is all about peace, whether it is at the Peace Palace, its tranquil art galleries or strolling along its beaches at Scheveningen and Kijkduin.
