Eurostar Business Premier, Brussels-London

Eurostar Business Premier, Brussels-London Definitely more relaxing and productive than taking a plane, with very little queueing and no anxiety about my carry-on toiletries being over 100ml or whether my bag would fit in the overhead locker. It’s a shame Brussels Midi isn’t as swanky as Kings Cross St Pancreas, where on my outward journey I’d enjoyed browsing the shops and had a wide choice of where to eat and drink. And, apart from the plastic bottle of water, I felt good about my lower carbon footprint too.
