Owner description: St Pancras International is one of the greatest Victorian buildings in London. It has become a key destination for Eurostar and high-speed rail in the UK, as well as a fantastic retail and hospitality destination. It has something for everyone - from the amazing Terrace Wires public arts installation to cornerstone and prestige retail outlets such as Fortnum & Mason and John Lewis.

Impressive, lovely building, however my favorite place in London, as it was my way out of dreary London and back to beautiful Paris.

The transformation of St Pancras Station is nothing short of extraordinary, and to think a couple of decades ago they were going to knock it down.
The area around St Pancras used to be very seedy, this has now changed for the better. The building exterior has benefited from some extreme sandblasting revealing outstanding brickwork. However the greatest changes are in the interior, where hotels, shops, restaurants and bars are aplenty, whilst keeping all the period features. The stairs leading to the hotel are the best I have seen and I feel like I have eaten quality food in a museum setting.
Great home for Eurostar, best get there early and explore the station!!!

St Pancras has always been one of my favourite buildings - gothic architecture at its best. Thank the Lord it wasn't flattened for a skyscraper!. The renovation reveals a beautiful structure which is, in my opinion, far superior to Buckingham Palace. The interior is modern with a wide range of coffee shops and popular light restaurants such as Yo Sushi, Pret a Manger etc.The Eurostar terminal gives a much better impression to visitors from Paris than Heathrow does, and there is often the chance to hear music being performed live on pianos
If travelling from other stations and via the tube, bear in mind it's a fair trek between the different areas - to be noted for anyone with mobility issues.

The design is world-class, the architecture is stunning and the views are amazing. London St. Pancras is a fantastic train station located in Central London, mostly popular with Eurostar travellers. There is free Wi-Fi within the International Terminal along with several shops and eateries including Marks & Spencer Simply Food, Le Pain Quotidien, WHSmith etc. Take time to check it out on your next visit to London.

As train stations go, this one is better than most. The Eurostar lounge is spacious & combines a modern feel to the original 1868 building designed by William Henry Barlow very well indeed. Plenty of shops & cafe's, as well as wi fi And plug sockets to charge your phones, laptops, I pads etc. Signage and announcements are in plenty of time very clear and in both English & French. Easy access to London Underground. Makes this a far less stressful alternative to airports.
