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. Travelling by train from London to Brussels is very easy, with Eurostar offering six to ten departures per day on this route. It is first and foremost a business route, so you’ll have a wider choice of direct trains on weekdays than at weekends.

    The first part of the journey from London sweeps through Thameside landscapes and rural Kent to reach the Channel Tunnel. Entering France at Calais, the rail route to Brussels then tracks east across Flanders to gain Belgian territory shortly after passing through Lille (where most but not all trains stop). Since April 2018, Eurostar has offered its fastest-ever journey time on the London to Brussels route.

    London to Brussels tickets on Loco2 are the same price as booking directly with Eurostar. Tickets can normally be booked 180 days before travel, and that’s the moment to book if you are keen to get a bargain fare. Even just a couple of months before travel it’s often still possible to find cheap tickets, especially if you are prepared to travel on one of the more lightly loaded off-peak services.

    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 many but not all Brussels-bound Eurostar trains make an intermediate stop. Some trains make up to three additional stops – at Ebbsfleet, Ashford and Calais. In April 2018, Eurostar introduced twice daily non-stop trains on the London to Brussels route, taking just 108 minutes for the 373km journey.

    Eurostar trains from London 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. At Brussels Midi, there are good onward connections with a choice of Thalys or German ICE trains for direct links to Germany, as well as Belgian (or sometimes Dutch) Intercity trains to cities across the wider BeNeLux region.

    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.

Child and youth passengers

The definition of "Child" and "Youth" varies by country and rail operator. This is why we ask for the age of young passengers.

Sometimes children below a certain age can travel without a seat for free. If you want to guarantee a seat for child passengers, enter '6' as the age of the child.
