"The launch of the London to Amsterdam service marks a historic milestone in the expansion of worldwide high-speed rail travel, revolutionising the connection between these important destinations", the company said. The Amsterdam - London service would not set down passengers at Brussels South with boarding only permitted at this station.

Starting April 4, passengers will be able to hop on board a train at London's St. Pancras International and reach Amsterdam's Centraal station in just three hours and 41 minutes, while traveling at a speed of about 186 mph.

Amsterdam trains will offer a journey time of 3h 41min, with trains to Rotterdam taking 3h 1min, and a new record journey time of 1hr 48min to Brussels, a saving of 17 minutes.

This is a temporary measure while the governments of the Netherlands and United Kingdom are working on an agreement which will allow passport controls to be done in the Netherlands. These customers will see their journey time cut by 17 minutes as the time onboard is reduced from 2hr05 to 1hr48. Both governments have committed to completing this by the end of 2019.
