Dutchflyer is the name given in the UK to an integrated passenger service between the United Kingdom and the Netherlands. Formerly known as Amsterdam Express, Dutchflyer is a rail/sea/rail service operated jointly by Stena Line, the Dutch state railway operator Nederlandse Spoorwegen and its UK subsidiary Abellio Greater Anglia.

History

The Dutchflyer service is a successor to former boat trains such as the LNER's Hook Continental service, which operated between London and the Netherlands from 1927 to 1987.

Originally, the Dutchflyer brand was only used to market the service to passengers starting in the UK, while in the Netherlands the service was advertised as GoLondon. Nowadays the Dutchflyer brand is not used so prominently and the service is sold through the Dutch Stena Line website.

Booking

The Dutchflyer service lets passengers travel from any UK railway station served by Abellio Greater Anglia to Harwich International (formerly Parkeston Quay), cross the North Sea by Stena Line ferry, and continue, after arrival at Hoek van Holland Haven to any station in the Netherlands served by the Nederlandse Spoorwegen (or in the reverse direction). Trains to and from London and Cambridge are timed to meet the ferry.

Train services

After arriving in Hoek van Holland, passengers disembark right into the railway station, from where there is a frequent rail service to Rotterdam Central Station. At Rotterdam passengers may change trains to go anywhere in the Netherlands. An example is shown in this table for a connection by rail from Hoek van Holland to Rotterdam and then to The Hague or Amsterdam, or stations in between.
