Once upon a time, St Pancras was a neglected, dark station with just two shops situated within a red light district. Today, St Pancras is an impressive station hosting both domestic and international services, whilst the surrounding area is being re-generated.

St Pancras has the following trains:

Thameslink (Bedford/Luton Airport to East Croydon, Gatwick Airport and Brighton);
Eurostar to Paris and Brussels;
East Midland Trains to Nottingham, Sheffield and Derby;
South Eastern high speed trains to Ashford and Canterbury in Kent;
it has the most underground links of any main line train station (along with King's Cross).

The shops keep improving with a range you would expect to see at a major airport: Fortnum & Mason, a bookshop, Godiva chocolates & a mini John Lewis. A variety of cafes, Yo Sushi and fast food outlets.

The top level has wonderful views of the beautiful blue ceiling and historic clock. This level has a champagne bar and a shop specialising in British made products. Besides the Marks and Spencer in the main arcade, there is bigger branch selling clothes as well as food below the South Eastern trains platform.There is a money exchange bureau near the Eurostar exit and an automated money exchanger near the Circle line entrance.

If you want even more retail and eating choices, King Cross station is a few minutes walk and besides it own outlets inside, there are often food markets around it during the day.

The St Pancras exit near Fortnum and Mason takes you to a dedicated London Transport visitor centre for ticket advice, Oyster cards and maps.

Tip: when leaving the Victoria line platform, avoid the middle exit unless you need the lift for your luggage. To walk using this exit can take nearly 10 minutes! Instead, use the exit at the end of the platform and reach St Pancras station in couple of minutes.

Probably the best Eurostar station, lots of local shops and restaurants, good security set up to get to the Eurostar and an okay but not great food choice while waiting. Signs and information is clear and the entire station is clean and maintained to a good standard.

This station is huge with loads of shops to browse if you like shopping as well as lots of places to eat.

We caught the Eurostar from here and I was really impressed with the station.

Been here a few times now. Lots of shops by the station. Very good restaurants in the first floor with great toilets so you don't have to que downstairs. We always get a picnic from Marks and Spencer when we go to Belgium, so much cheaper that on the train. Leave plenty of time for the check in as we nearly lost our seats due to one of us being very close to the check in time, only 4 mins to spare!
