A Eurail pass would not be a good idea. You need to make bookings direct with the companies that run the trains.

London-Paris or London-Brussels: www.eurostar.com

Other travel: www.b-europe.com/Travel/Booking/Tickets

Book travel to and from London as soon as you can at www.eurostar.com . The cheapest fares sell out first. You can buy tickets simply London to Brussels, or you can buy to 'Any Belgian Station' which allows you ONE unbroken journey (except where necessary purely to change trains) onwards to/from any destination within Belgium within 24 hours of your Eurostar arrival /departure.

You can also buy through tickets between London and Rotterdam/Amsterdam.

Travelling within the Benelux countries is easy. There are no reservations on domestic services so you can just turn up, buy a ticket and go. Or you can use the b-europe site above if you prefer to have the tickets before you travel - although they are dated, you can use any train that day.

Also worth mentioning that if you wish to travel directly between London and the Netherlands there is also the 'Dutchflyer' rail-sail option, using the Harwich - Hoek van Holland ferry.
