    One of the few places in London where you can still get a coffee, with seating and shelter, in the middle of the night, as the station and some of it's coffee shops are open 24 hours.

    Wonderful old station, great mix of old & new architecture. Different sections of the station go to different places. Have a nosey at the different statues & watch the trains going to Paris & Brussels

    First opened in 1868, then renovated and expanded in the 2000s, this station is a beautiful mix of old and new. Wait for your train at the longest champagne bar in Europe and enjoy!

    The outside of St Pancras was once again used to represent King's Cross Station in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 (2011) as the next generation of Hogwart's students head to their train.

    Eurostar. Great hotel and restaurants. Lounging areas. Upper floor is much more tranquil and civilized away from the bustle of the ground floor if you have the time to chill before your travel

    After missing their train to Hogwart's, Harry and Ron take the flying Ford Anglia instead. The scenes show them flying past the London St Pancras in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002).

    One of my favorite train stations. Really cool architecture and a ton of shops and places to eat. The 2012 shop and top-floor oyster bar are must-visits. Oh, and the trains are nice, too ...

    Looking to grab a coffee? Last time we checked, instead of a £1.50 filter coffee from Starbucks, you can get a freshly roasted organic coffee for only 99p from Pret a Manger (just opposite).

    Travellers unfamiliar with London: If xferring from St Pancras/King's Cross 2 Euston (or vice versa), usually quicker to walk if you've no heavy baggage. Tube takes longer & costs a lot 4 only 1 stop!

    But an Oyster Card at the Eurostar's bar on your way in. It'll save you from queuing, and it's a lot cheaper than buying single fares

    Easy to locate, booking was very simple. Quick trip across the channel to Paris is easy and peaceful! On the way back, there was a delay on the tracks so it took longer, but that was an anomaly.
