Eurostar: St. Pancras to Gare Du Nord

Posted on 05 October 2012

Eurostar is a fabulous way to travel; it was everything expected and more. My colleague and I boarded the train at St. Pancras station in London with plans to go to Brussels, Belgium. St. Pancras was well organized making it easy to find our train. St. Pancras also offered no-charge “easy-cart’s” accessible, right at the station’s entrance.  When we arrived at the train we were ushered to our spacious seats and our bags were stowed away by the courteous staff. The food service started quickly after departure. The three course meal was delicious, including champagne and impeccable service. I was pleasantly surprised at how spacious the area was, leg space was very ample and for a tech savvy business traveler, there is plenty of room and plugs to set up a laptop and get right to work.

The Belgian and English country side that surrounded the high-speed train was soothing and the train was surprisingly quiet. In just two short hours the train was to arrive in Brussels, not before passing thru underneath the English Channel. The conscientious staff welcomed us to Brussels and helped us off the train, where our luggage was waiting for us. Returning to England was just as delightful as going. Everything went off without a hitch and they even changed our ticket times with no extra charge or hassle. If you are looking for economical, fast, comfortable transportation the best option for travel between London and Brussels is Eurostar.
