Trains to Brussels

Taking the train to Brussels makes it easy to reach one of northern Europe's most cosmopolitan destinations. The UK is well connected to Brussels thanks to direct services between London's St. Pancras Station and Brussels-Midi. Midi is right at the heart of the city, making it ideal for sight-seers and those who need to visit Brussels for business.

Which is the main train station in Brussels?

All trains to Brussels from the UK will get into Brussels-Midi. Midi is one of numerous major stations in Brussels, and the most centrally located. Situated on the Avenue Fonsny, it's a short Metro ride from Grand Place and the European Union buildings. And it also offers a wide range of onward connections, including trains to Cologne, Hamburg, Amsterdam, and Paris.

Which train companies offer trains to Brussels?

Trains from the UK to Brussels are always operated by Eurostar, which runs cross-channel services at least 8 times every day - and usually once an hour during the middle of the day. Services aren't affected by seasonal changes, and trains travel direct. The journey time is rarely much more than 2 hours, so it's a very convenient route to travel.

Why travel by train to Brussels?

Brussels is well within reach by train. Since the start of Eurostar services, the Belgian capital has been 2 hours away from London by high-speed rail connections, so it's a short journey and perfectly adapted to commuting or city break trips. Trains are comfortable and roomy, with premium onboard services. Travellers can work via speedy wifi connections or relax, and they arrive in the centre of Brussels. So there's no need to transfer from out of town airports. Finally, with departures throughout the day, it's always easy to find a convenient time to travel to Brussels.

Before you travel to Brussels by train - good to know!

Brussels offers a mix of Metro, overground, tram, and bus options, and the public transport system is very efficient. For tourists, the best way to get around is probably purchasing a Brussels Card. This doesn't just provide free transport all-day-long, it also delivers discounted admission to 39 major attractions. But don't just stick to the Atomium, or the museums or galleries covered by the card. Dip into bohemian St. Gilles, with its bars and vintage stores, explore the multi-cultural food and clothes shops around Naamse Poort, and don't miss the spectacular Royal Greenhouses at Laeken.
