@dingerr, me and SWMBO have done Eurostar around a dozen times now. You'll automatically get upgraded to Standard Premier as that's where the disabled seating is (there is also accessible seating in Business Premier too, far better IMO), you get a 2 course meal and some nasty wine or beer with that too. If you get Business Premier, 3 course meal and a few drinks thrown in, prosecco instead of wine but the same beer. Facilities are very good on the newer trains, not so much on the older ones. Always try to get Business Premier from St Pancras, free bar and food available at the station in the Business Premier lounge, travelled to Paris for my birthday last year, caught the 10:00 train but was in the bar from 08:30. If you do go to Paris (even as Standard Premier), you'll get use of the Premier Bar on the way back, all free again so kick the arrse out of it. Paris itself is pretty crap at disabled access, the buses are fine as people do tend to move out of the way for wheelchair users and it's a good way of seeing some of the sites without getting off. The Metro is pretty crap for wheelchair users as the vast majority of stations aren't step free.I’m looking ahead to getting out and about once we get out of lockdown. Having just watched a program where the presenter travels from London to Rotterdam, I thought it would be a good way for me to travel.
I hate flying now, not through fear, but it’s not nice being separated from my wheelchair and not being able to go for a píss.
I’ll be giving Paris a miss, I’ve read it’s terrible for wheelchairs, Brussels the same, but Rotterdam and Amsterdam appear very good.
I’m interested in hearing from those who have travelled on Eurostar and their experiences.
Agree with @BarcelonaAnalPark about Terminus Nord, cracking restaurant and reasonable prices, in the summer, you can just sit outside, get drunk and people watch.
We've not done the Amsterdam trip yet, but hope to soon. The last I heard, you could get Eurostar direct to Amsterdam, but coming back, as there was no Customs at Ams, you had to get a normal train to Brussels and then change onto Eurostar.
