Prices explained

At Loco2 we believe in price transparency. We use real data from Loco2 searches to estimate the cheapest fares you should be able to find for your journey.

The cheapest price is the lowest fare we've ever found for this journey. These prices can usually be found by searching when booking opens but they vary due to availability, which depends on factors like the day of the week or time of year.

More popular journeys include 30 day advance and 7 day advance prices. These are updated every two weeks using prices we've found by searching exactly 7 or 30 days from the most recent Thursday (we picked Thursday because this is when average prices are usually found).

30 day and 7 day prices fluctuate based on demand and availability at the time of search. For example, the 7-day price in summer is likely to be more expensive than the same journey in winter.

Prices are sourced in GBP and converted to other currencies using the daily market exchange rate.

We're always seeking to improve how price-checking works, and we welcome feedback on how we can make it better.

  1. It is easy to take the train from London to Bruges. The journey requires just one change of train at Brussels Midi. There are between six and ten departures from London each day, the exact number varying by day of the week. The journey starts with a high-speed run on Eurostar from London to Brussels. That’s where you change onto an Intercity train for the onward journey to Bruges.

    Tickets for your journey from London to Bruges via Brussels normally go on sale three months prior to travel. This route carries a lot of business traffic, so it pays to book well in advance if you are keen to get a bargain fare. But even closer to your travel date, it’s often still possible to get a reasonably priced ticket if you are prepared to travel on one of the more lightly loaded off-peak services.

    London to Brussels

    London to Brussels

    Board a Eurostar service from London St Pancras to Brussels. Little more than an hour after leaving London you’ll already be in northern France, speeding through Flanders fields towards Lille Europe, where almost all Brussels-bound Eurostar trains make an intermediate stop. Some trains make up to three additional stops – at Ebbsfleet, Ashford and Calais.

    From Lille, it is just 35 minutes to Brussels, where Eurostar trains terminate at Brussels Midi station. Trains run every five minutes from Brussels Midi to Brussels Central (for the city centre). Your Eurostar ticket is valid for this short onward hop within Brussels.

    Remember to factor in at least half an hour for Eurostar’s airline-style baggage check prior to boarding your train. This is a light-touch security scan, and there are no restrictions on taking liquids on board Eurostar trains.

    Brussels to Bruges

The journey from Brussels to Bruges runs through the Flemish region of Belgium. The travel time is about 60 minutes. All trains on this route make a stop at Gent on the way; some services may halt at one or two additional stations. Leaving the train in Bruges, it is just a short walk into the city centre.
