According to google route map this can be done from London in around 7 hours. Anyone done this? Timing seems optimistic at best. Any real world experience?

Sounds OK to the Belgium/German border.

Depends how fast you go.;)

I've made it from Calais to the Nürburgring in ~4 hours before, so about 3 hours to get to the border.

However I've also done the same trip and spent 2 hours just getting round the Brussels Ring Road.:tantrum:

We did from the Hook of Holland to Essen in approximately just over 2 hours.
Obeyed the speed limits where designated then cranked it up to 140mph on the Autobahn. (I wasn't driving and I was a bit scared to say the least...even worse, nutters screaming past us at 180mph+)

It takes me about 7 hours from Darmstadt to London. From Köln to Calais its about 3-4 hours but driving through Belguim is so boring. Make sure you tank up and then just put on the cruise control at 130 and keep going.
