I was an Art and English Literature student at college, (alongside law, history and languages) so I was excited to be invited for a tour of St Pancras International station to discover its history, the story behind the statues and decor within the station and how it became the great shopping place it is today. Food and drink, as well as the new Eurostar Terminal is all available here. I delightfully finished off my tour with a delicious afternoon tea at Fortnum & Mason. The cakes were the prettiest and most tantalising tea cakes I have ever eaten. You can also experience this! St. Pancras International has teamed up with Fortnum & Mason, to celebrate the station’s 150th year, and from the 21st May they will be offering a unique hours tour of the station followed by afternoon tea at Fortnum’s. With an insightful historic walk around this iconic station and some very delicious treats to enjoy afterwards, it will definitely be a wonderful experience. I absolutely enjoyed every part of this tour. If you book a tour and tea package you’ll find out why I mentioned it’s great for art and English literature enthusiasts.
Tickets are £45 per person, please click here for further info or to book your experience.
