Well, my experience of getting the Megabus to & from Brussels ultimately turns out to be an appalling one. Yes, I am a pampered soul & cannot bear any inconvenience at all. I walked up to Gare du Nord at midnight for my 00:15 coach, and stood there in the freezing cold & rain until 1am when I gave up. There are no signs to tell you where the bus is, and no employees of the company. God knows how much longer the bus was going to be but I was not prepared to wait any longer. I came back to the hotel, booked a Eurostar ticket for 10:56 (for £133!) and went back to bed.
