Prague is a beguiling, magical city and it's very easy to reach by train from London.

From 4 days From £350
Enjoy the wonders of this ancient city without having to fly. Take a relaxing train journey right into the heart of Prague. It's closer than you may think and so perfect for a long weekend away.

The quickest way to reach Prague by rail is to travel from London to Brussels on Eurostar, then connect to Cologne on the excellent ICE service before finally taking the overnight sleeper train to Prague by City Night Line. You can leave London in the afternoon and be in Prague the following morning.


First go to the Deutsche Bahn website and enter "Cologne" (Koln hbf) & "Prague" in the destination boxes. Then enter the sleeper train times ( 22.28 outward and 18.29 inward). Book and print out your tickets (registering with DB helps access your journey details at a later time, should you need to).

Secondly, buy tickets from London to Cologne. Either do this by booking the London Speziale with DEUTSCHE BAHN (prices start from €59 each way - go to "OFFERS" on the homepage and click London Spezial) or book separate tickets for each stage (Eurostar from London to Brussels - Brussels to Cologne) using the EUROSTAR WEBSITE and then the DEUTSCHE BAHN site. You could also check the prices for Thalys for Brussels to Cologne on the Belgian railways site, as they may possibly be cheaper.
