How can I travel to and from London?

Eurail passes aren't valid in Great Britain (England, Scotland and Wales). However, your pass does entitle you to discounts on travel to London with the Eurostar train or to 1 location in England by ferry.

Eurostar high-speed trains

The Eurostar offers the only train connection between London and the European mainland. This private railway company runs a high-speed passenger train from St Pancras Station, London  to Gare du Nord, Paris (France) and Bruxelles Midi, Brussels (Belgium) through the Channel Tunnel.

Eurail pass holders can buy tickets at a special fare, which can be booked by telephone only, on +44 1233 617 575. Discount tickets cannot be booked online. All fares are subject to availability and the Eurail pass must be valid in either the country of departure or the country of arrival. You don't need to activate your Eurail pass to get this discount.

Please note that sometimes a regular ticket might be more cost effective than the pass holder fare. For this reason, we recommend that you compare prices.

Ferry travel

There are a number of ferry routes connecting Great Britain with France, Ireland, the Netherlands and Spain.

Eurail pass holders are entitled to a discount on the following ferry routes:

  • Harwich (England) – Hoek Van Holland (Netherlands)
