London – A Visit To St Pancras Railway Station

St Pancras railway station, also known as London St Pancras, is a magnificent railway station, enormously spacious and filled with that adventurous atmosphere of travel and excitement. The station is celebrated for its Victorian architecture. The architecture as you approach the station is quite something to behold.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A security-sealed terminal area was constructed for Eurostar services to Continental Europe via High Speed 1 and the Channel Tunnel, with platforms for domestic trains to the north and south-east of England. The restored station has 15 platforms, a shopping centre and a bus station, and is served by London Underground’s King’s Cross St Pancras tube station.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Just being there, watching the people and taking in the sights, was a marvellous experience. The roof is simply spectacular.

About Don

I love life. Sometimes it makes sense, other times not. Discerning its underlying patterns and beauty always provides great reward and meaning and is a passion I ineptly follow. I feel deeply attached to nature and love the sea with its distinct moods and colour and find walking along its beaches wonderfully inspiring. Writing, sketching and photography is a sheer joy for me and the blog is one of the places I am able to express these pursuits.

    Magnificent shots, Don. I’m off to invite Martin (a tried and true trainspotter) to swing by. When you have the chance, you might enjoy comparing THIS station with his post on King’s Cross:
