International Rail Services are currently operated by Eurostar, travelling direct to Paris, Brussels, Lille, and Marne Le Valle (for Disneyland Paris).
With the high-speed line passengers are able to reach Paris in just over 2 hours and Brussels in under two hours.
Following the liberalisation of the International rail market in 2010, there is now the possibility of competing rail operators providing international services.
HS1 Ltd are working with Deutsche Bahn on plans to incorporate three additional international return journeys, between Frankfurt and London via Cologne, Brussels and Lille. This will include connections from Amsterdam via Rotterdam to London.
HS1 Ltd welcome discussions with other operators interested in running such services.
