Data Graduate

Why choose Eurostar?

Two decades ago, we changed the way people travel from the UK to Paris and Brussels forever. We are the only high-speed train that directly links the UK to France, Belgium and now Amsterdam. Since 1994 we have carried over 150 million passengers.

Today, we have created a generation of travellers who think nothing of hopping on the train after breakfast and relaxing in a Parisian bistro by lunchtime.

We have always been at the cutting edge of innovation in our industry. From being one of the first train companies to introduce business lounges and a loyalty programme, all the way to the everyday advantages of travelling by train rather than plane. Our vision is to become Europe’s most loved travel experience. Do you want to be part of this journey?
