From Wikipedia:

"United Kingdom
The standard height for platforms is 915 mm with a margin of +0,-25 mm.[5][14] On the Heathrow Express the platform height is specified at 1,100 mm (43.3 in) .[15]

High Speed 2 is expected to be built to dimensions conforming to the European Union technical standards for interoperability for high-speed rail (EU Directive 96/48/EC)[16] i.e. either 550 mm and 760 mm;[5] High Speed 1 has a platform height of 760 mm (29.9 in) on its international platforms.[17]

Your height will depend on what scale you're using -- 1:148 for UK models or 1:160 for Japanese (and maybe others). So for a standard UK layout you're looking at 6.2mm.
