Eurostar changes stations!

eurostarEurostar launches services from St Pancras International from 14 November 2007 – and all services will start and terminate at St Pancras rather than Waterloo, which has been the terminal since the service was launched in 1994.
Close to Kings Cross and Euston mainline stations, this will make life much easier for travellers from the Midlands and the North who will no longer need to cross from one side of London to the other. Furthermore you will be able to buy through tickets from many stations in the UK or online
The new St Pancras International station looks stunning, retaining key characteristics of the original Victorian edifice whilst bringing some modern touches. There is an excellent series of photos on the Guardian website.

There is also a website about the station at www.stpancras.com – but this tends to emphasise the function of the station as somewhere to visit, to shop and eat/drink!

The new intermediate station at Ebbsfleet in Kent, just off the M25 orbital motorway near Dartford opens on 19th November 2007 and will be ideal for car drivers to connect with the high speed links to Paris, Lille and Brussels – the new line will cut 20 minutes off the travel time. – London to Paris – 2 hours 15 mins; London to Brussels – 1hr 51 mins; London to Lille – 1hr 20 mins

Passengers should be aware that there may be some restriction in the timetable over this switchover period.
