Your journey begins at St Pancras International station, where before boarding the Eurostar trains, you will have to go through check-in. In order to enter the Schengen Area, verification of identity and travel documents is required. During these security checks, baggage and passengers alike need to go through a scanner.
Check-in1 is located in a specially designed terminal. The Terminal also offers various recreational facilities for when you’re waiting to board your train to Brussels. Relax in one of the cafés, shops or comfortable lounge areas before your departure. Find the check-in on the station plan >
