St. Pancras International



Built almost 150 years ago, St. Pancras is widely famous for being one of the two terminal stations of the Eurostar who crosses the English Channel, with direct connections to Paris and many cities of Belgium and the Netherlands. In what it happens to be an exception to the logic of the european railway stations, St. Pancras has a complete separate sector for the international terminal within, with strict security measures and controls, similar in that sense to an airport. Thorughout its history, this station went through three different stages: the first one was during its first 100 years, when it was planned for the transportation of goods but also ended as a passenger hub. It was damaged by the german bombings during the Second World War. The second stage was in the decades who followed the 1960s, when it was planned to be demolished. And the third, the recent history when it became an international rail icon.

King's Cross (Railway Station)



King's Cross is usually considered as a part of a two-combined railway stations along with St. Pancras, in what it can also be considered as a transportation hub, with the arrival of the Underground, many buses lines and the Euston Station just a few blocks away. It's widely famous for the filming of the Harry Potter scenes, especially with the Platform 9¾.

One third of traffic is now made up of cyclists, and is the peak form of transport in the rush hours.
