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 at the first floor, 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 exit, but you do not realise 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.
