Bruges has been a UNESCO World Heritage site since 2000, with the goal of preserving its marvellous medieval architecture. Notable medieval buildings include the Church of Our Lady and the medieval bell tower, the Belfry of Bruges. The international railway service between London and Bruges is operated by Eurostar. High-speed trains travel between both cities in just over 2 hours, without requiring any changes or transfers. Trains on this route start running at 6:13 a.m. and depart approximately every two hours until 7:34 p.m. Weekend service begins at 6:57 a.m. and ends at 7:04 p.m.
Departure Station: Trains from London to Bruges depart from St. Pancras station, which is located around two miles north of the city center. St. Pancras serves most underground lines in London, including Hammersmith & City, Circle, Metropolitan, Northern, Piccadilly, and Victoria. Traveling by tube to St. Pancras is a convenient form of transport given the abundance of tube stations all around London and the high frequency of services that run from early in the morning to late at night.
Arrival Station: Station Brugge, located just outside of the historical center, 1 mile south of the main tourist area of Grote Markt square, the Belfry, and the Museum Quarter. The vast majority of city buses stop or terminate at the train station, although the most convenient lines for visitors are 1, 6, 11, 12, and 16, which go to the city center approximately every 10 minutes.
