Hello, how are you? I would like to know if someone can help me. My family and I will travel to Europe in April, in this case London, and we want to visit Paris and Brussels. Should I buy this pass? How does it work? Thank you very much for your help.

Ordinary tickets for London - Paris starts at £78 return, or even £58 return during a sale. The same for London - Brussels.
With the pass, you will have to pay an extra fee of about €30 for each train (€60 return) on top of the cost of the pass.
So have a look for the prices for a regular ticket at the dates you want to go. It’s almost certainly cheaper to buy a ticket, and not get a pass.
Hopefully you’re not travelling during Easter as trains are very expensive or sold out.
I’d also buy regular tickets on eurostar.com ASAP.
Keep that these journeys are 2h-2h30 so you’ll likely take the first train of the day if you’re really planning a day trip. Maybe a round-trip London - Paris - Brussels - London in 2-3 days would end out cheaper...
And it’ll be hard to get a return ticket for less than 170€ so a 4-day Global Eurail pass might be worth it… 250€ + 4 x 30€ reservation (if available)
Check for your dates if passholder fares are available and if regular tickets are cheaper or more expensive in the end…
