I am coming to Antwerp on 28 November for the afternoon, but am confused about how long it will take by train.
Using Eurostar's website I found connecting trains from Brussels- Midi to Antwerp-Berchem, but there are very long connection times at Brussels (up to 1.5 hours), which means 4 hour total journey times. But, looking at Belgian timetables from Brussels to Antwerp elsewhere on the web, there appear to be more trains from Brussels to Antwerp than Eurostar advertise, resulting in shorter connection times.
I need to be in Antwerp about 1.30pm, leaving around 5.00 pm. Can anyone point me in the right direction for finding the quickest route? And if I can't buy through tickets in the UK, will I be OK turning up in Brussels and buying them on the spot? Thanks!!!
If I can't find what I need I'll probably end up flying which I really don't want to do...
