We love St Pancras and the iconic St Pancras International Station. Be sure to see the famous ‘kissing statue’ as you travel through – you can’t miss it, it’s nearly nine meters tall.
St Pancras International station sits in the centre of London and features the longest bar in Europe, stretching 96 meters and seating 110 people. Named after St Pancras Old Church, which dates back to 400 AD making it one of the oldest sites of Christian worship in the UK.
There’s far more to St Pancreas station than travel; with food and shopping including the famous Fortnum and Mason and The Betjeman Arms pub, named after the famous poet. Perhaps the most famous feature of the station is the Chambers, noted for being the entrance to King’s Cross station in the Harry Potter films.
And there’s even a hotel inside St Pancras station. Pop fans may recognise the hotel lobby steps from the Spice Girl’s video, Wannabe. The hotel is also featured in films including Batman Begins and Bridget Jones’ Diary.
