It is an easy journey by train from London to The Hague (Den Haag in Dutch) in the Netherlands. The journey starts with a high-speed run on Eurostar from London to Rotterdam, where you change onto a Dutch Intercity train (or a local service) for the onward journey to The Hague. Your ticket for the short hop from Rotterdam to The Hague is not tied to any particular train, so if you wish you can break your journey in Rotterdam for an hour or two.
While Eurostar tickets go on sale six months in advance, tickets for the short final leg to The Hague may not go on sale until much closer to the date of travel – sometimes only three months in advance, and only then is it possible to buy a through ticket from London to The Hague. In some cases it makes therefore sense to buy two separate tickets.
If the timings of Eurostar's direct trains from London to the Netherlands don't fit your schedule, you'll find alternative routings to The Hague with just one change of train in Brussels. There is a direct Intercity train (four times daily) from Brussels to The Hague. Yet other options are available with two en-route changes: one at Brussels and the other at Rotterdam.
London St. Pancras International to Rotterdam Centraal
Travelling by train from London to the Netherlands is now very easy, with Eurostar offering twice-daily departures on this route. This is a journey which takes in four countries: England, France, Belgium and the Netherlands.
The first part of the journey from London sweeps through Thamesside 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. All trains to Rotterdam stop at Brussels Midi before tracking north through Antwerp towards Rotterdam and Amsterdam.
London to Rotterdam tickets on Loco2 are the same price as booking directly with Eurostar. The train from London stops at Rotterdam's Centraal Station, from where it is just a short tram ride south to the central district and the complex of museums and galleries around Museumpark.
Rotterdam to The Hague
Frequent trains link Rotterdam with The Hague; the journey takes just 20 minutes, with most trains stopping at Schiedam and Delft along the way. With trains running about every ten minutes from Rotterdam, it's hardly necessary to check the timetable. Just turn on and ride! All trains stop at Den Haag HS station, and some then continue to Den Haag Centraal.
