There are no services between Oostende and the English coast anymore.
Passengers wishing to use the train-boat-train combination between Belgium
and the UK are bussed from Oostende to Calais, where they board a fast
ferry. I cannot imagine the service being very popular...
Eurostar Brussels - London can be had for EUR 40,- one way if you book 21
days beforehand. So I wouldn't dismiss this option to soon...
