About Eurostar

Eurostar is a high-speed rail service linking London St Pancras station (renamed 14 November 2007) in the UK with north Paris, Lille, France and Brussels, Belgium (south). The train leaves London and crosses the English Channel to France. Eurostar trains in Belgium and France use the same track as TGV and Thalys in France, and a new section of track in the UK that meets TGV standards. Major stations: London St. Pancras, Kent, Paris (France), Brussels (Belgium), Disneyland France, etc. Since the first official Eurostar train entered service in November 1994, it has become the most popular train on the London-Paris rail route. In November 2004, Eurostar usage accounted for 68% of the London-Paris route and 63% of the London-Brussels route. Prior to 14 November 2007, it took 2 hours 35 minutes from London to Paris and 2 hours 20 minutes from London to Brussels. The second stage of the Channel Tunnel Link was completed in 2007 and opened in November of the same year, the Eurostar is a 300 km/h ultrafast train, the time from London to Paris and Brussels was reduced to 2 hours 15 minutes and 1 hour 51 minutes respectively. Completion of the second phase of the project has not only increased the speed of travel, but also significantly increased the frequency of services to London. London and mainland Europe will increase by at least eight trains per hour in both directions.
