My frame of reference is the InterRail pass, circa 1992, where Eurostar didn't exist, and UK passholders could, at best, get a discount on boat train services to Dover Marine or Folkestone Harbour.
Well, presumably you do qualify for an Interrail pass which is also valid on Eurostar (subject to paying a reasonable passholder fare). You also have a free round-trip from anywhere in GB to your port of departure (London if you're taking Eurostar). Great if you're coming down from somewhere like Edinburgh - not so useful from Biggleswade, I guess.

To the OP - the global Eurail pass is valid in Great Britain from this year, so could be useful if you're also planning some long-distance trips there.
