The milestone was passed with just one week to go before the launch of Eurostar services from St Pancras International, and represents an 11% increase in the number of bookings at the same time last year. It is further evidence that the prospect of making international rail journeys through the superbly restored station is proving highly popular with travellers between the UK and the Continent.

Tonight's royal opening of St Pancras International by HM Queen Elizabeth II signals the final seven days of preparation to move Eurostar's entire London operations overnight from Waterloo, and to begin commercial services from Eurostar's new central London home on the morning of Wednesday 14 November.

London & Continental Railways has completed the 5.8 billion engineering project on time and within budget. While St Pancras International will next week become Eurostar's new London terminal, High Speed 1 will provide Eurostar with a dedicated, 68-mile high-speed line between central London and the Channel Tunnel.

The new line will enable Eurostar trains to operate at 186mph across Kent - 50% faster than any other UK rail service - cutting journey times between London and the Continent by at least 20 minutes.
