There’s so much more to the Netherlands than windmills, tulips and cheese. Renowned for being pancake-flat, the Netherlands is a hotbed of world-class art, exciting culture, and forward-thinking architecture. And now, it’s a doddle to get there from St Pancras International.

Our daily trains run direct from London to Amsterdam via Rotterdam. It takes just 3 hours 52 minutes to get to Amsterdam Centraal, and only 3 hours 13 minutes to get to Rotterdam Centraal.

And it’s now even easier to get home again, with direct trains from Amsterdam Centraal arriving in London in 4 hours 09 minutes while trains from Rotterdam take 3 hours 30 minutes.

Trains go direct from city centre to city centre. There’s no hidden charges for luggage or limits on liquids, and with a Eurostar journey from London to Amsterdam emitting 80% less CO2 emissions* (per passenger) than the equivalent short-haul flight, there's never been a better time to take the train.

If our direct train times don’t suit you on the way home, you can take a Thalys train from Amsterdam Centraal or Rotterdam Centraal to Brussels-Midi/Zuid. When your train arrives in Brussels, you’ll need to go through security and have your passport checked before you hop on a Eurostar train back to St Pancras International.

Just a heads up that anyone thinking of going the first weekend in May (1-3), it is the first Dutch F1 GP in 35 years and there are 10000s of people expected to go and stay in and around Amsterdam so hotels will either be booked up by now or incredibly expensive. The race is in Zandvoort on the coast but there are hardly any hotels there so Amsterdam will be pretty busy and there is also expected to be fan zones in the city too.

Anyone expecting a quiet city break to wander around peacefully might want to go another weekend.

BREXIT followed by BRETURN Everybody's happy.
I might look for a job in Amsterdam... its cheaper than commuting to London.
People keep moaning about HS2 being a white elephant, yes maybe in the short term but in the long term it will reduce overcrowding on trains, if the existing rail network is down people have an alternative, brings extra jobs etc. On the one hand people be complaining of congestion on trains yet when a solution is poised they complain. Can't win can.

Link below gives a matrix view of the London to Amsterdam dates for £35 each way after the 30th April when you have direct returns available. Also worth noting that if you are looking to go London to Rotterdam, direct returns start from 18th May and there are similar each way fares for £35.

When HS2 is built maybe?
4hr40min... Great alternative to flying i'd say! (if you're in London that is)

I'd like to see the price of a ticket.
Seems like it will be OK for business travellers who will get their ticket paid. Only those with high paid jobs will be using it for commuting.

The issue on the Omio site is that you can only book dates up to 11th May (and direct returns only start 30th April), so if you need a date after this period you would need to book direct.

Ok, but the earlier deal posted by reindeer does state that.

Sort of, but deal states you can book May to August dates via Omio. Assume is an oversight that he wasn't aware there was a 3 month max booking period.
Red (light) hot!
Good deal. Not easy to find cheap hotels though. 😩

That's the issue. We're off to Amsterdam in the summer and it was going to cost us more to get a train to London from Yorkshire than the train from London to Amsterdam.

Flights from Manchester are under £70 return and take barely an hour.

And yet a train ticket from almost anywhere to London is bound to be at least double this, making it cheaper and quicker to go by plane.

Flights from London Luton are cheap too. Was looking end of Feb/beginning of March and was only like 85-90 return. Cant see appeal of train really as not that much cheaper

Get in fast. After this year you will lose your right to work in the EU and have to get a visa, which practically means few companies will bother offering you a job.

Also check their settlement scheme for British people stripped of EU citizenship who move over during the transition period as you will need that to stay.

It's a nice place to live and work and, at least for now, you can commute back to the UK to see family and friends pretty easily.
I’m just back from a long weekend in Amsterdam (Thursday pm - Sunday am ) thought it was a nice place but very expensive don’t really see the appeal of a train when the flights can be found relatively cheap - wouldn’t hurry back based on prices out there
Isn't it cheaper, faster and easier to get plane ticket instead?
I fly to Amsterdam on regular basis and I've never payed more than £65 return.takes 40 minutes.

I live in a Northern town where _if I'm lucky_ the Manchester train will turn up on time once an hour. That's it.

If we work in Manchester, our only options to get to work are either an unreliable 2-carriage train from 1982 or a car (and the ensuing M60 ring road nightmare).

HS2, to us, IS a white elephant.
Its actually cheaper getting plane for months may/june/july (easyjet) takes 40 minutes
But you can fly for the same price and save 2 hours?

Opinion stated as fact is not useful to anyone.
Take a look at the hotel prices before you book anything. Last time I went, the cheapest AVERAGE review hotel was over 100 per night, nowhere near the centre and it was a dump. Not been for a while, priced itself out of the market....unless you are happy in a central hostel dorm of 20 for 75 per night.

The plan is to remove the high speed trains from the rest of the network, this will free up the local networks to run better.
But that does also mean if HS2 was down its going to take a VERY long time to get from London to anywhere on the normal network. For a lot of people it will take longer to get to an HS2 station.
Couldn't find any times that were reasonable, unless midweek. Also, as kgb123 says, hotels are extortionate in Amsterdam at the moment.
I've given up with the Eurostar....fancied a trip to paris euro Disney and they wanted €400 !!!! Cheaper to fly.

Why don't they just improve the signalling and run 18 trains an hour like they say they will do for HS2...

People entitled to an opinion especially when not covering other major cities just keep the money running its way to London, also people will be losing family homes to have leaves on the line more tickets sold than seats, so overcrowding will always be an issue

if overcrowding will always be an issue lets tell northern rail, cross country, transpinie express and the rest of them to retire their fleets and we'll just use 1 train for the entire railway network
Good deal been waiting for these to be released. Shame for some reason there is no returns on the weekend of the 9th June!
