Eurostar set to start Easter celebrations

Eurostar is set for one of its busiest weekends of the year as over 150,000 passengers are expected to travel over the Easter bank holiday with the high-speed rail operator.

Over 85,000 Brits will travel over the Easter break - a 16 per cent rise in passenger numbers compared to the equivalent period in 2014.

Thursday April 2nd is the busiest day for departures, with travellers looking to make the most of the spring break.

Eurostar stations will be hosting a range of activities and treats for customers throughout the Easter period with chocolate eggs, bunny-shaped cookies and badges, Easter themed passport stamps and photo booths in the departure lounges.

There will even be a real-life Easter bunny on board selected services and in St Pancras International station across the weekend.

“With fast journey times, city-centre to city-centre travel, and a generous baggage allowance, Eurostar is becoming an increasingly popular way to travel to mainland Europe.”
