Though its not cheap, the Eurostar (ie the Chunnel) would likely be your most convenient option. I'd suggest you look into that.

All the best, Pauline

Defintely book the Eurostar, less than 2 hours for the fastest journey from London to Brussels. you can book tickets 4 months in advance, the sooner you book, the cheaper the fare!  Ferries tend to go to France rather than Belgium and are not practical from London
