"Our new route marks the culmination of the extensive investment in high-speed rail on both sides of the Channel".

The new Eurostar route from London to Amsterdam will be launched on April 4, marking a "historic milestone" in the expansion of worldwide high-speed rail travel.

Return passengers will continue to use Thalys services from the Netherlands to connect with Eurostar in Brussels where security checks will take place, adding an extra hour to the journey. That trip will take approximately four hours and fo minutes.

A new rail service is set to whiz passengers from London direct to Europe's own Sin City: Amsterdam. One-way fares will start at just £35.

Harrison is Mixmag's East Coast Editor. Train manufacturer Siemens and Dutch train company NS (Nederlandse Spoorwegen) are conducting tests on the service that will make the connection between Amsterdam, Brussels and London.

"The launch of our service to the Netherlands represents an exciting advance in cross-Channel travel and heralds a new era in worldwide high speed rail". It says the market for travel between London and Paris has more than doubled as passenger increasingly choose high-speed rail over the plane. There will be two trains per day departing at 0831 and 1731. This is a temporary measure while the governments of the Netherlands and United Kingdom are working on an agreement which will allow passport controls to be done in the Netherlands. This will change once the British and Dutch governments reach an agreement for documentation checks to take place in the Netherlands. The company said that travel to Brussels will now be even faster with the new route too, only taking one hour and 48 minutes, instead of two hours and five minutes.
