Buying a Eurostar ticket to visit the UK

European Rail How To Guides

How to get to the UK by train



The Eurostar is the only train that crosses from continental Europe into the United Kingdom. Unfortunately it's not included on any rail pass so separate tickets are needed.


As it's a high speed premium service Eurostar tickets should ideally be purchased in advance rather than at the station when you arrive. At peak times the trains will be full so without a prior booking you could be left waiting for a train for a long time.
