Default London Heathrow to Brussels

ok...im playing in belgium next month on may 16th, the last day of my exams. ive just found out they moved one of my exams and it is now on, you guessed it, friday 16th may from 2-4pm!!!!!!

baslcially!

so i need to find the quickest and preferably cheap way to get from london heathrow to brussels. i live about 30mins from heathrow on bus which is an advantage, so im guessing the earliest my flight can be would 5.30 pushing it but 6oclock-7 in order to get there in time.

i dont like flying - i was going to get a bus there but now this stupid exam has screwed my plans over! flight only needs to be one way as im getting the bus back, but if anyone can recommend a good website? ive never booked a flight for europe before, only in asia. this exam has screwed up everything - i was meant to be moving house but now i will have to do it a week early! arghhhhhhhhh

also while were on the subject is there a cheap bus from brussels to amsterdam, was gonna pop up to see some freinds but this flight has ruined my nice open jaw bus ticket i was gonna get

And Eurostar as well. Which will put you in downtown Brussels by 7:26 if you can make the 4:35 train.

haha no chance will i be able to make it to charing x to get eurostar...and i just looked on the website and it quoted me 150 for one way to brussels! :eek:

but thanks for looking, that heathrow flight was the best one i could come up with too, i think ill be able to make that one ok although ive got to check that my connection of someone picking me up in belgium is still ok now im goin to be late.

i might see if i can sit the exam earlier, its a revealed question and theres pleanty of other exams of the same legnth and subject so hopefully i can blag it! if not i will have to do the old rush to belgium job on a plane
