Eurostar The Eurostar terminal at St Pancras International

BOOK EUROSTAR HERE

As the Eurostar people claim, the "brand-new central London terminal is pretty swish". This is more like an airport than a train station. By that I mean it has shops, cafés, bars, a bureau de change, toilets, an information desk and even a Eurostar souvenir outlet. And also Europe's longest Champagne Bar. Not particularly cheap, though. Here's a run-down on the facilities:

  • World-class brasserie, Europe’s longest champagne bar, and a daily farmers’ market.
  • Cafés, a currency exchange, newsagents, a gift shop and cash machines (basically everything you need at a terminal but forgot about or lost on the way)
  • Ticket office (open daily; Opens 1 hour before first departure, closes at 9pm) Travel Centre, group welcome desk, special assistance desk and self-service ticket collection machines
  • Registered baggage service 
  • Wireless internet access
  • Lounge facilities open to all travellers. 
  • Toilets (with baby-changing facilities)
  • Separate lounge for Business Premier and Eurostar carte blanche holders. Designed by Philip Starck, no less (Business Premier lounges).

An announcement is made when your Eurostar is ready for boarding. There are four platforms reached via escalators designated A, B and C. The announcements screen in the terminal tells you which escalator to use depending on the number of your coach (on your ticket). This is so you don't have to walk a few hundred metres up the platform bumping into everyone else trying to get on.
