What security checks are there at the station? - Eurostar Help Centre

What security checks are there at the station?

Just like an airline, Eurostar works with European authorities to ensure a high level of security on each journey. It might mean an extra step at the station but since safety’s our top priority, we take our security checks seriously.
 
What can I take with me?
Unlike airlines, we don’t limit the volume of liquids you can carry, so you can take all your toiletries with you, and even squeeze in a bottle of bubbly for the trip if you like. And if you’ve picked up a coffee at the station, just pop it in the special tray and we’ll hand it back on the other side of security.

How much time should I allow for security?
For most journeys – but not all – you should get to the station 45-60 minutes before departure. This’ll give you enough time to scan your ticket, then go through security and passport control.
 
You can find out more about your journey and see all of our station arrival times in our guide.
