Take the Eurostar to the mainland on an independent day trip to Belgium. Use your hop-on hop-off bus ticket and explore the cosmopolitan city of Brussels. Brussels is a medieval city perfectly suited for a day trip to London.


  • Done in English

After checking in at St Pancras, your Eurostar train will depart at 7am. When you arrive in Brussels, you can take the surface train into the city center (about 00 minutes), or take a taxi (around GBP5).

In Brussels you will find the home of the Grand Palais with its incomparable Town Hall, precious guild houses and many restaurants nearby. It is a cosmopolitan, pleasant and compact city where the English language is widely spoken.

The tourist bus leaves the Grand Palais area on a regular basis and your day trip includes a ticket on a panoramic 'hop-on hop-off' tour of the city stopping at all the sights such as the Palace of Justice, Parliament and the Atomium.

Your return by train will be scheduled for 10:04 a.m. in St. Pancras local time.

This is an unescorted tour, a guide is not included.
