Eurostar launched its di­rect route from Lon­don to Am­s­ter­dam on April 4, al­though the re­turn jour­ney still has to go via Brus­sels. The jour­ney time, with a stop in Rot­ter­dam, is three hours 41 min­utes (four hours 40 min­utes on the re­turn). There are two de­par­tures a day from Lon­don St Pan­cras In­ter­na­tional (at 0831 and 1731) with prices from £35 one-way.

When will the Am­s­ter­dam-Lon­don route be di­rect? A spokesper­son for Eurostar says: “We will run a di­rect ser­vice in both di­rec­tions as soon as the UK and Dutch gov­ern­ments fi­nalise an agree­ment al­low­ing im­mi­gra­tion and pass­port con­trols to be car­ried out by the bor­der au­thor­i­ties on de­par­ture in the Nether­lands, as is the case with other key Eurostar desti­na­tions. The gov­ern­ments have given their com­mit­ment to this by the end of next year.”
