London to Frankfurt by train

Making a transfer between trains in Bruxelles seems to be the best option for a journey by train from London to Frankfurt (Main) - the Eurostar from London and the ICE train on to Germany use the same station in the Belgian capital.
However, the trains on to Frankfurt typically depart around 20 mins or less after the arrival of the Eurostar -so the options sold by the ticket agents include this combination of trains, which enable the fastest possible end-to-end journey time.
Though if you would rather book an end-to-end journey option, with more time between trains, the ticket agents typically package together journeys which involve having to transfer between different stations in Paris
The Eurostar from London will arrive at Paris Nord and the trains on to Frankfurt will depart from Paris Est.
