The Meeting Place

St. Pancras International railway station, London

The Meeting Place, a statue at St. Pancras International railway station, London

St. Pancras International is a huge London railway station hosting Eurostar trains (trains on the first floor, the entrance at the ground level), Thameslink connections (underground) and high-speed trains (ground level). It is located near the Kings Cross station (practically across the street)

The official name of this nine-meter tall bronze statue by Paul Day is ‘the Meeting Place‘. It is located exactly at the front of the Eurostar platform at the St. Pancras station upper level. You can see it when you get out of the train and head towards the exit, but you do not realize how huge it is. The statue was unveiled a decade ago during a re-opening ceremony of the station, and the official launch of the Eurostar trains in London. Its foot is decorated by reliefs.
