Kings Cross is a district in Central London, England, miles ( km) north west of Charing is served by London King's Cross railway station, the terminus of one of the major rail routes between London and the nial county: Greater London. St Pancras railway station (/ ˈ p æ ŋ k r ə s /), also known as London St Pancras and officially since as St Pancras International, is a central London railway terminus on Euston Road in the London Borough of Camden. It is the terminus for Eurostar services from London to Belgium, France and the authority: London Borough of Camden.

  St Pancras International is merely the 'jewel in the crown' of a much larger project called High Speed 1 that has been ten years in the making, cost close to £6bn and was the largest construction. Situated in central London, St. Pancras Station was initially designed in by William Barlow for the Midland Railway. Upon its completion two years later, St. Pancras Station's train shed stood as the largest enclosed space in the world.

  One place in particular that struck me was The Gilbert Scott, located in the stunning St Pancras Hotel and offering guests a fine dining experience, very different to your usual station regulars such as Pret and Starbucks. Perfect for setting up a meeting with easy access to the station, Danielle and I booked a table one evening for a catch-up. Kings Cross St Pancras Studio 2 offers accommodations in London, miles from British Museum and miles from Royal Opera House. It is located a minute walk from King's Cross Theatre and provides free WiFi plus an ATM/10(80).
