Photographer's Note

Eurostar trains waiting to leave St Pancras station in London.

St Pancras station is a work of art. The old station has been very sympathetically restored at a cost of 800 million GBP and is now the home of Eurostar. The station boasts several well known retail outlets for those with a few euros or GBPs to spend.

For the more affluent or those wishing to depart on a romantic note, there is a champange bar. Sir John Betjemins statue graces the upper floor. The original brick work is a joy to see, as is the wonderful glass roof.

Then there is the beautiful 9m "The meeting place" (The Kissing couple) bronze statue which takes pride of place and was situated behind me when I took this photo. This work of Paul Day was featured in a BBC documentary. It is an amazing sculpture and a joy to see.

If you are ever intending to travel by Eurostar to either Brussels or Paris, take a trip up the escalator, or take the stairs and admire the glass roof, the old achitecture and brickwork, and of course the wonderful statues.
