Departure train station: Newcastle Central is a major hub for the North East of England. The station is located on the River Tyne, less than 5 minutes' walk from the city's main attractions and shopping district. Sitting along the East Coast Mainline connecting Edinburgh and London, it is well served by cross-country and intercity services and can be accessed more locally by the city's Metro and bus services. There is a range of pubs, shops and restaurants all accessible from the main station building. The station has step-free access and has many features for travellers with limited mobility, including wheelchair use.
Arrival train station: Amsterdam Centraal is Amsterdam's busiest rail station. Centrally located at the north end of the city centre, it is about a 10-minute walk to Dam Square at Amsterdam's heart. It has extensive public transport connections including trams and buses as well as a ferry taking passengers to north Amsterdam. The station hosts a full complement of food and retail outlets and has step-free access for travellers with limited mobility.
There are four train companies operating along this route. The journey always starts with LNER's service from Newcastle to London King's Cross followed by the Eurostar across the English Channel. Some of those trains run straight to Amsterdam, but some options involve changes at Brussels to take the SNCB | IC (Belgian Rail Intercity) or Thalys services. Both operators offer direct trains from Brussels to Amsterdam but there are some routes that involve a transfer.
The LNER service is the easiest and fastest route between these two cities. It runs frequently throughout the day and while there are journeys that involve transfers (which can occasionally be faster), the direct service lasting just over three hours is a very reliable option.
Eurostar's direct service between London and Amsterdam lasts about four hours on a direct service, which is easily the fastest and cheapest option. There are two of these per day - one leaves late morning the other sets off early evening.
Any route options that involve transfers after leaving London will first change at Brussels. The SNCB service between Brussels and Amsterdam operates several times per hour and all through the day. It does involve a transfer at Rotterdam Centraal or Antwerp, and although it takes slightly longer than the direct route (around three hours), it is usually cheaper.
Thalys operates exclusively direct routes between these two stations. It is the slightly more expensive option but takes a mere one hour 53 minutes. There is only one of these per day however, departing at 9:52 a.m.
All train services along this route offer a first-class option, and the Eurostar has a business-class option, too. Bicycles will require a separate booking but are permitted along all route variations. All services have wheelchair access, but pets will not be permitted on the Eurostar unless they are guide dogs. There is plenty of luggage space along the whole route, but the Eurostar has a luggage allowance of two pieces per person with more for first and business-class ticket holders.
Taking the train from Newcastle to Amsterdam can be a relatively inexpensive travel option with careful planning. Travellers should be sure to book as far in advance as possible to ensure the cheapest tickets available. Allowing some flexibility over travel dates and travel times can be a real help too, with the journeys that have more changes often working out cheaper.
