London St. Pancras Train Station
Travel by Train
St Pancras International Railway Station is located between the British Library and King's Cross Station, and on the south side is Euston Railway Station. It is an important transportation hub in London. It was opened in 1868 and the exterior building is very striking. The railway station is known as the "Railway Cathedral" and is a Victorian Gothic building. The interior is also very beautiful with an elegant Baroque ceiling designed to be an eye-catcher.
Since 2007, St Pancras International Railway Station has been the UK terminal and base for the "Eurostar" high-speed train, with direct connections to Lille (1 hour 20 minutes), Paris (2 hours 15 minutes) and Brussels (1 hour 50 minutes). A separate area of the station is dedicated to the Eurostar, for passengers only, and passports are required to enter.
From here you can reach Nottingham, Sheffield, Leicester and Derby in central England. There are also trips to Brighton, a famous seaside town to the south of London.
The train to and from London's Gatwick Airport and Luton Airport (National Rail) also stops at St Pancras International Railway Station.
