To London by train

While you sit back and relax with a book and a drink, Eurostar will bring you directly from Amsterdam Central Station or Rotterdam Central Station in about four hours to London St Pancras International: the historic railway station in the heart of the English capital. The sustainable Eurostar now runs three times a day and as of September even four times. And the sooner you book, the better the price. So hop on the train, because a weekend in London has never been so comfy!

Springtime in London

A city break is always a good idea, but you don't want to miss London in springtime. The city awakens, pavement cafes reappear, rooftop bars open and the locals gather at the bustling outdoor markets. Especially on weekends, the hustle and bustle of working life gives way to relaxation and a serene atmosphere prevails in the metropolis. Whatever you want to see, the famous sights, trendy restaurants or vibrant vintage markets, you will find it all in London. So book your ticket now and take these spring tips with you on your trip.

Maltby Street Market

The quaint Maltby Street Market, tucked away under the industrial arches of an 1836 railway bridge, is home to the best places. Every Friday to Sunday, the street is packed with stalls selling delicious food from all over the world. No other market in London attracts so many locals. They also buy their fresh produce here, such as fruit and vegetables.

Do you like vintage? Then stop by Lassco, where you can browse antiques, curiosities and refurbished treasures for your home.

Green rooftop

Celebrate spring in one of London's best-kept secrets: Queen Elizabeth Hall Roof Garden Cafe & Bar. This green rooftop garden with allotments, fruit trees and wildflowers is a place to leave the hustle and bustle of the city behind. Unwind with a freshly ground coffee, homemade cakes or a cocktail with a choice of gin from around the world. On a clear day at sunset, you will have a breathtaking view of the city.

St. Dunstan in the East

In the middle of the city, stands the ruin of a medieval church, which today serves as a mystical city park. St. Dunstan in the East was severely damaged by a fire in 1666 and almost completely destroyed by a bomb in 1941. Now greenery grows abundantly through the stretched out windows and vines snake around the historic walls. The blooming cherry blossoms in spring enhance this pretty picture. This park is the ideal stop for a leisurely picnic.
