Domestic Rail Services

Domestic services on the high-speed line began in December 2009, operated under a UK franchise agreement by Southeastern railway.

Since the service began, commuters from Kent using the service have been able to benefit from significant time savings. For example, commuting from Ashford to central London used to take 84 minutes and now takes just 37 minutes on the HighSpeed service.

The domestic services stop at all the stations on the high-speed line with Stratford just 7 minutes from St Pancras, Ebbsfleet 17 minutes away and Ashford International station just 37 minutes away.
