Eurostar this week announced a new night train from London to Berlin – here are all the international destinations you can reach from London right now.

While flying may be the cheapest option, many travelers love to visit Europe by taking a more scenic route.

The Eurostar, which can be boarded from St Pancras International, provides easy access across the English Channel to France and beyond.

The company has now confirmed that passengers will be able to go directly to another location in just a few months.

Sleeper trains will run from May 25, 2023 in a night train from London to Berlin.

Where can you travel from London on the Eurostar?

A new service has been introduced by the Dutch-Belgian railway company European Sleeper to Berlinwhich begins later this year.

But it’s not really a direct service.

Customers board at St. Pancras station on a Friday afternoon, have a short transfer in Brussels around two hours after the start of the journey and arrive in Berlin the next morning.

A retreat then departs late Sunday evening, meaning passengers will arrive back in London on Monday morning.

It sounds like a lot of fun, too, since you’re offered breakfast in bed on board and the whole thing takes less than 16 hours.

Sights in the German capital include the Berlin Wall Memorial, the Reichstag building, Berlin Zoo and Mauerpark – one of the largest and busiest Sunday flea markets in Berlin.

You can already visit the city of Cologne in western Germany from London with a quick change at Brussels-Midi/Zuid, but your ticket covers the entire journey.

France

Travelers can reach three different train stations in France direct from London, all of which offer a variety of connecting services.

These are Paris (Gard Du Nord), Marne-la-Vallee for Disneyland and Lille.

The Eurostar can take a maximum of 2 hours 37 minutes to get to the French capital, but most trains will get you to Paris in a quick 2 hours 16 minutes.

Disneyland has long been a popular destination for those traveling by train from London, getting you right outside the park’s gates in just 2 hours 49 minutes.

The good news is that with Eurostar, families can enjoy the magic of Disney anytime, even during busy times like school vacations and bank holidays.

However, this direct service is due to be phased out in June this year, meaning you will soon have to change via Lille or Paris.

Elsewhere, you can use connecting trains to get to Nantes, Avignon, Lyon and Marseille.

Brussels is one of the most popular destinations for traveling with Eurostar.

No wonder, as it only takes one hour and 53 minutes to be in the center of the Belgian capital.

With its rich history, stunning architecture and delicious food, this city definitely has a lot to offer tourists.

During your stay you can visit the Grand Palace, the Atomium and the Royal Palace of Brussels, among others.

Alternatively, upon arrival in Brussels, you can change trains and travel to Ghent (about 30 minutes away), Bruges or Antwerp.

Netherlands

The Eurostar offers direct connections to two of the best European cities in the Netherlands – Rotterdam and Amsterdam.

It takes you around 3 hours 13 minutes to get to Rotterdam, while Amsterdam takes a little longer – with a journey time of 3 hours 52 minutes.

In Amsterdam you can really relax, because there are over 1,500 bars, cafes and clubs to relax in, as well as over 600 shops and markets.

Recommended regions for booking a stay include the Centrum district, Nieuw West and Leidseplein/Jordaan.

Meanwhile, Rotterdam is full of confusing history, dating back to 1270 – but was virtually wiped out in World War II.

This means that much of the architecture is more in keeping with New York than a traditional Dutch city.

Rotterdam is a vibrant university city with a buzzing nightlife and great shopping, so there’s no shortage of things to do.
