Travel advice United Kingdom concerning coronavirus

All non-essential travel between the Netherlands and the United Kingdom is strongly discouraged. Dutch people who are currently visiting the United Kingdom are urged to return to the Netherlands. Due to the coronavirus outbreak, many flights, train journeys and ferry services have been canceled. The number of departure options from the United Kingdom is therefore rapidly declining. Before traveling back to the Netherlands, please check with your train, bus, ferry or airline company to see if your journey continues.
