Eurostar marks ten years since relocating to St Pancras International

Eurostar today marks the 10-year anniversary of relocating from Waterloo to St Pancras International in London.

The improved station facilities and reduced journey times have helped support passenger growth of 25% from eight to ten million travellers a year.

The departures area for the high speed Channel Tunnel passenger service has been upgraded this year to further improve the experience for travellers to Europe.

Electronic gates are now in place to speed up the security process and the departure lounge will include a new Pret A Manger and World Duty Free, due for completion early next year.

A new service to Rotterdam and Amsterdam will soon provide a seamless connection to the Netherlands.

Since 2015, the Eurostar fleet has been transformed with the introduction of state-of-the-art e320 trains have been introduced over the past two years while a number of Eurostar’s original carriages have been refurbished including free Wi-Fi.

Eurostar chief executive, Nicolas Petrovic, said: “The move to St Pancras International 10 years ago reduced journey times by over 20 minutes, making Eurostar even more attractive to business and leisure travellers.

“With continuing investment in our trains, stations and service, customers are increasingly choosing high-speed rail over plane to a range of destinations.”
