According to reports, there will be two trains a day and the journey from St Pancras International to Amsterdam city centre, which will take just under four hours.

Direct Eurostars between London and Rotterdam are also said to be in the “final stages of preparation” and will follow shortly afterwards.

The train operator is already taking on airlines on its Paris and Brussels routes, offering fares as low as £25 one way. It also highlighted the start this Sunday of its new e320 trains between London and Brussels.
