WHY: The London-Amsterdam route has always been one of Europe’s largest international airline markets (during the week there are on average more than 40 daily flights each way between the two cities), however as of 2018 UK travellers will finally have a convenient alternative to flying from the heart of the British capital. Eurostar is launching its direct, high-speed rail link between the two cities in December 2017, with regular services expected to fully run in time for the Easter break. The long-awaited service will also call at Antwerp, Belgium’s second city and biggest port, and hip Rotterdam, allowing for more choice to anyone looking for an easy break across the Channel.
BOOK IT: Take advantage of the new Eurostar service and venture on a fascinating Amsterdam to Bruges Bike and Barge trip (8 days) with UTracks through Belgium and the Netherlands; from £830 per person, departs April-September
