We booked with Eurostar a return train from Amsterdam to London (we went from London to Amsterdam direct without change with Eurostar). Eurostar assigned a Thalys train for us from Amsterdam to Brussels Midi. We then must change to the Eurostar train from Brussels Midi to London St Pancras
Our Thalys Train arrives at Brussels Midi at 12:08 and our Eurostar Train departs at 12:52. That gives us about 40 minutes between trains. The Eurostar says ticket gate closes 30 minutes before departure, meaning 12:22.
That means once we arrive at Brussels Midi we have about 10 minutes to get off the Thalys train and to the Eurostar gate.
So, is that enough time to get off the Thalys train and get to the Eurostar gate? We've never been to the Brussels Midi station so if anyone can give us some detailed directions on what to do we would be much relieved.
That is, once we get off the Thalys train, what should we look for? I would think we will go down an escalator, and from the station map online it looks like the Eurostar Channel Terminal will be on our left as we walk forward?
There a video online for getting off Eurostar from London and onto connecting trains at Brussels Midi but not the reverse.
