Eurostar is also boosting weekend services, with up to 20 trains on Fridays from London and Paris and 19 trains from Paris to London starting from 11 July 2008.

Extra trains are being added to meet the surging demand from travellers wanting to travel by 186mph trains to the Continent. Eurostar is seeing growth of more than 100% in some regions north of London, as travellers take advantage of good value through fares, easy connections via domestic rail services to St Pancras International, and the high frequency of Eurostar trains – with rail providing more flexibility and choice than regional air services.

Travellers are also being attracted by the opportunity to see the magnificently restored St Pancras International – now one of the grandest railway stations in the world - which besides its amazing architecture offers a wide variety of shops, bars and restaurants with a truly cosmopolitan ambience.

Eurostar services from St Pancras International travel at 186mph to Brussels, Paris and Disneyland Resort Paris, with a huge range of connections to more destinations across France, and cities such as Bruges in Belgium, Amsterdam in the Netherlands, and Cologne in Germany.

The addition of extra trains will mean that there is a half-hourly service between London and Paris during the morning and evening peaks, and close to an hourly service throughout the rest of the day.

Eurostar's Communications Director, Simon Montague, said: “We are delighted at the growing numbers of travellers from the regions and we will soon be rolling out more through fares with other UK train operators.

The increase in services means we have 24,000 seats available between London and Paris on Mondays to Thursdays, and 30,000 seats on Fridays. We advise travellers to book early to get the best deals.”
