Check-in times EurostarThe Eurostar high-speed train travels through the Channel Tunnel when going from Brussels to London. Therefore, the safety requirements for this train are higher than for other international rail travel in Europe. This is why passengers must check-in when travelling with Eurostar. Passengers need to check-in in Brussels, or on the way back in London, at least 30 minutes prior to departure.
Please note: If you are travelling on Eurostar with an Interrail ticket, you will need a check-in time of 45 minutes. It is your responsibility to check you have enough time to change trains when planning the trip. A first class Business Premier ticket will give you access to the lounge as well as a special, short check-in time of 10 minutes.
Metro in LondonAfter a quick and comfortable train journey with Eurostar you arrive at London St. Pancras International station in the heart of London. London has an excellent public transport system of subways and buses. With the special Oystercard you can use all bus and metro lines in London.
