Eurostar has today put on sale seats for the first services from its new base at St Pancras International.
The first trains from Eurostar’s new London home will run on the morning of Wednesday 14 November, and will travel on newly completed high-speed line High Speed 1, reaching speeds of 186 mph.
Eurostar said it would be the first train operator in the world to provide ‘carbon neutral’ journeys for all its travellers, at no extra charge.
From today, travellers can also buy tickets for the final trains from Waterloo International, Eurostar’s London terminal since 1994. Eurostar services to and from Waterloo International will end on Tuesday 13 November.
Eurostar’s move to St Pancras International from Waterloo is designed to open up high-speed rail services to millions of people across Britain. International travellers will be able to connect with seven mainline train operators at St Pancras, King’s Cross and nearby Euston, and with six London Underground lines.
