Skip the queues, waits and luggage restrictions of the airports and instead head to the continent by Eurostar. After much anticipation, the train company is expanding their reach to the one of Europe's hottest destinations.
Previously one could not travel return direct from Amsterdam but now, with customs occurring earlier in your journey, it is now possible. As of the end of October, one can travel from London to the Dutch capital undisturbed in just over 4 hours. To begin with there will be 3 trains a day, with increased traffic over the following months - this could change due to COVID restrictions.
Eurostar has quoted that its trains are deep cleaned before every journey and to enforce social distancing, a new seat map system will be put in place.
For those who are eco minded, the train vs flying actually pumps out 80% less carbon emissions!
Please note that currently those returning from the Netherlands as of 15th August are subject to 14 day quarantine.
