Alternative ways to travel from Amsterdam to London

Does anyone know alternative ways to travel from Amsterdam to London other than by plane? How about ferries? Is the crossing rough the end of November? Thank you!

1) Ferries can take from 4 hours to 14, depending on what type of craft. You have to get TO the port in Holland, and FROM the port in England, which adds a couple of more hours. No guarantees that a storm won't kick up and prevent the ferries from crossing, but it isn't an everyday event.
2) Train from Amsterdam to Brussels, then Eurostar (Chunnel) to London. That will take about 5 hours, station to station.

1. Train/ferry combination. Best connection is London Liverpool Street Station to Harwich by train (1.5 hours), ferry from Harwich to Hoek van Holland (4 hours), train from Hoek van Holland to Amsterdam (1.5 hours). Sea crossing can be rough in November.
2. Train all the way via Brussels.
3. Cheapest and longest is by bus. Try Eurolines.
4. If you decide to fly check out Easyjet at The earlier you book, the cheaper their fares.

Wasn't sure if it's traveling by air or the price that bugs you, but if it's the price, you can fly from Amsterdam to London via EasyJet ( for incredibly cheap fares (like $50 or less one-way).
