Little by little, travel by train across the continent is becoming an easier way to travel. Seen by many as a simpler – and often more sustainable – alternative to flying, this can only be a good thing.
Eurostar to add a plethora of new destinations[/trackLink] to their roster, and last year saw a new proposal to connect more than 40 European cities by sleeper train.

Well, one new sleeper journey has arrived, and it’ll let you travel from Stockholm to London in 24 hours – and even stop off at Copenhagen on the way! Plus, SJ – the company running the new route – is using completely renewable energy and encouraging drivers to not freewheel, meaning to not use their engines to drive forwards.
A EuroNight service from SJ is carrying out the journey from Stockholm to Hamburg, offering a comfortable ride with duvets, pillows, and breakfast served in the morning.
While we don’t have a direct service from Stockholm, the journey to London by train is far simpler than before. You just need to hop on board the sleeper train to Hamburg, from there take the train to Brussels and then take the Eurostar from there all the way to London. All in all, the trip will take around a day and travellers dreaming of this journey will be able to carry it out from September 1.
Prices for the route have not yet been revealed, but you can keep your eyes peeled here for further updates.
