Taken February 20th 2010 - our first trip on the new high speed train link between Kent and London. It's the first high speed train service in the UK and it *very much* reduces train travel time between Kent and London.
Travelling at up to 140mph, the journey time from Ashford International to London is now just 37 minutes. And Ebbsfleet International to London takes only 17 minutes.
The trains run on High Speed 1 (HS1), the UK’s first high speed rail line between London St Pancras and Kent.
We went to the Museum of Natural History in London - and to a sushi restaurant first - so all in all a very exciting day!
