Eurostar, the high-speed passenger rail service linking the UK with mainland Europe, is launching a third direct daily service from London to Amsterdam on 11 June.
To mark the introduction of the additional service and the opening of Van Gogh’s sunflower exhibition in Amsterdam next week, Eurostar unveils a specially commissioned gown made entirely of fresh sunflowers.
Inspired by the iconic Dutch masterpiece, celebrity costume-designer, Kate Tabor, has created the dress to celebrate the “Van Gogh and the Sunflowers” exhibition, which runs from 21 June – 1 September at the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam.
Since launch in April 2018, over 300,000 passengers have travelled on Eurostar’s new route from London to Rotterdam and Amsterdam, which is testament to the ease and comfort of the high-speed rail link between these cities.
Competitive fares start at £35 one-way, with journey times from just 3hrs 13mins to Rotterdam and 3hrs 52mins to Amsterdam.
Mike Cooper, Chief Executive, Eurostar, said:
“With environmentally responsible travel rising up the consumer agenda, we’re boosting capacity and offering more flexibility with a third daily service.”
