It's easy to travel to Leicester by train from mainland Europe, using the Eurostar service and connecting at London St Pancras International. If you're travelling from Paris or Brussels, you should be able to book a through service to Leicester. It's possible to travel from Paris to Leicester in around 4 hours 25 minutes in total, and from Brussels to Leicester in just over 4 hours.

When you arrive at London St Pancras International, you'll need to change trains onto the Leicester service - the train takes a little over an hour. The first train of the day leaves London for Leicester at around 6am, with the last train of the day departing at around 11pm.

Once you arrive at Leicester, we suggest taking a taxi for the short journey from the railway station to the DMU campus. This should cost between 5GBP and 10GBP.
