Eurostar Is Expanding Its Service From London To Amsterdam

Despite the fact that Amsterdam is sick of tourists, the very popular destination is about to get even easier to access. Earlier this year, European train company Eurostar launched a new route from London to Amsterdam, and it was in such high demand that it decided to add a third train, running daily between the British and Dutch cities. Since the initial London-Amsterdam route was introduced, Eurostar has transported over 130,000 additional customers by rail.

The route’s new addition will open in July 2019, and Eurostar plans to double the service in the near future. First, however, it will try to make the journey itself more efficient. Currently, the train from Amsterdam to London requires a stop in Brussels for passport checks, which often causes delays. Passengers will be happy to know that a direct route is in the works, with no passport stop needed.

According to the new schedule, the first train will leave London at 7:16 AM, arriving in Amsterdam at 12:11 PM; the second train at 11:04 AM, to arrive at 4:11 PM; and the third at 5:16 PM, to arrive at 10:11 PM. To plan your journey, visit Eurostar’s website.
