Here’s something I’ve only just discovered but direct coaches are now running from Greenwich to Amsterdam on certain days throughout the week.
This could have been happening for some time but news to me. Flixbus are operating a service which leaves around midnight from Millennium Way in north Greenwich (and Stratford beforehand) with tonight’s route calling at Antwerp, Utrecht and then Amsterdam.
It leaves at 00:20 from North Greenwich bus station before crossing to France and stopping in Belgium at 9:25am.
It arrives in Amsterdam at bang on midday.
Next Thursday’s is quicker and avoids Antwerp. Times vary slightly each night.
Fares seem around £30 if booked far enough in advance, and avoiding the schlep to Victoria is always welcome.
