Yes, my destination on the return is London.

BTW are you aware that there are discount tickets to/from Germany via
Brussels and the EuroStar?

Checking the preceding Monday (since sales are not yet open for the one
we actually want) there's a Munich-->London route:

München Hbf 	Mo, 25.07.11 	dep 	10:50 	22 	ICE 720 	Intercity-Express
Frankfurt(Main)Hbf 	Mo, 25.07.11 	arr 	14:04 	 
 Transfer time 12 min. 		Adjust the transfer time
Frankfurt(Main)Hbf 	Mo, 25.07.11 	dep 	14:16 	  	ICE 14 	Intercity-Express
Bruxelles-Midi 	Mo, 25.07.11 	arr 	17:35 	 
 transfer 45 min. 	Adjust the transfer time
Bruxelles-Midi EST 	Mo, 25.07.11 	dep 	18:50 	  	EST 9157 	EUROSTAR
Subject to compulsory reservation, Special ticket or supplement required, Please observe check-in times, Non-smoker train, Bistro Cafe
London St. Pancras International 	Mo, 25.07.11 	arr 	20:03 	 

The quoted discount fair for that is 69 EUR

I'm not that bothered about 1st/2nd class, but will happily go 1st if
the price hike is not too much.

Cheers, Phil.
