Eurostar-another train question

i just posted one train question and I have another. If I understood the past post, is there a train from London to Brussels? If so, how long does it take? We were going to fly, but depending on price, a train may work out better. Thank you.

Eurostar run direct train services from St Pancras (in London) to Brussels. They take around 2 hours. Check out their website for times/prices:

The Eurostar takes one hour 55 minutes city center to city center.

I just paid $96 per person for second class through www.raileurope.com delivered to my door (for an extra $9).

Some people, including myself, prefer having tickets in hand for train travel rather than attempting to buy them at the station itself. I understand that we pay a bit more for this convenience but I find it worth the extra.

Enjoy your holiday.

Eurostar goes city centre to city centre with a 30 minute check-in so flying from Brussels to London only makes sense if you have a connecing flight. Book in advance from the Eurostar website for the best prices - picking up a pre-paid ticket at the Eurostar teminal at Brussels Midi station is very simple and all the staff there will speak English.

If you are not in the centre of either city then flying is often the better option. But if you do want to go to/from the centre of either city then the Eurostar is a very civilised way of doing so.
