UK/France: Eurostar changes 2017
Eurostar have notified us of a number of changes which are affecting some of their services.
Ebbsfleet to Disneyland Paris
Various dates until October 2017
To avoid overcrowding at Ebbsfleet station, Eurostar have closed tickets for sale from Ebbsfleet to Disneyland Paris for the following dates:
- Saturday 21 October 2017
- Sunday 22 October 2017
- Monday 23 October 2017
- Sunday 29 October 2017
- Monday 30 October 2017
- Friday 15 December 2017
- Monday 18 December 2017
- Wednesday 20 December 2017
This is to stop the departure lounge there getting too full on those days, but you can still travel from London or Ashford.
If you’ve already booked tickets from Ebbsfleet International there is no need to worry. Trains will still stop at Ebbsfleet as normal but it might be worth leaving a little extra time to check-in since it'll be busy.
Revised timetable 7-8 October
7 and 8 October 2017
Due to works in the Channel Tunnel, Eurostar will be running a revised timetable from the evening of Saturday 7 October until around 21:00 on Sunday 8 October.
During this period, journey times on all Eurostar routes will be slightly longer than normal since trains will be running at reduced speed through the Channel Tunnel.
The timetable reflects these changes.
Ashford International closure
26 November and 26 December 2017
Due to engineering works, Ashford International will be closed on 26 November and 26 December 2017. The following Eurostar services will not stop at Ashford:
- 9032 to Paris
- 9074 to Lille and Disneyland
- 9152 to Lille and Brussels
- 9023, 9045 and 9055 from Paris
- 9153 from Brussels and Lille
- 9057 from Disneyland
No step-free access at Ashford International
Until 31 October
Due to lift maintenance there’s no step-free access at the station until the end of October.
Lyon Part Dieu closure
23 and 30 September 2017
Due to planned engineering works, the 9084 and 9087 Eurostar services won't stop at Lyon Part Dieu station on Saturday 23 and Saturday 30 September 2017.
These trains will still call at Marseille St Charles and Avignon TGV on both days.
London to Disneyland Paris
6 January to 3 February 2018
Due to commercial reasons, no direct services are expected to operate between London and Disneyland Paris from 6 Jan until the 3 Feb 2018.
