I just got an email from Eurostar which I thought might be helpful to post here, about the move from Waterloo (booo) to St. Pancras (yaaay) next year:
Dear Mr Baloo
As a loyal Eurostar traveller, I thought it important to contact you at the earliest opportunity about our historic move from Waterloo International to St Pancras International.
The launch of Eurostar services from St Pancras International will be on Wednesday, 14 November 2007. The last services to operate between Waterloo International and the Continent will be on 13 November 2007. The move will take place overnight in order to minimise the disruption to our travellers.
The completion of High Speed 1, Britain's first dedicated high-speed line, will bring our high-speed services right into the heart of London at St Pancras International, reducing average London to Paris and Brussels journey times by 23 to 25 minutes.
Overall, the move to St Pancras International will provide our travellers with:
* Journeys which are at least 20 minutes quicker than from Waterloo International - just 2h 15 to Paris and 1h 51 to Brussels.
* Even better punctuality - on a line used only by high-speed operators.
* A magnificently restored, central London station - a destination in its own right with quality shops, stylish bars and restaurants.
* Greater connectivity - with six Underground lines serving King's Cross St Pancras and seven domestic rail services serving St Pancras International, Kings Cross and nearby Euston.
* Equal proximity to the City and West End.
Over the coming months we will keep you informed about our move and update you with news, events and developments taking place. For further information please click onto http://www.eurostar.com
