If you find yourself with time on your hands before catching your train, then why not indulge in a spot of retail therapy right at the station?
St Pancras International is station shopping, but not as you know it. Boutique retailers plus well-known high street brands fill the brick arches in the beautifully restored station. This is a lot more glamorous than the usual train station shopping experience.
If you are looking for something quintessentially British, head to Aspinal of London, Fortnum & Mason, Hamleys, Jo Malone London, Links of London or Things British Gift Shop.
For something to wear, there’s Whistles, Dune, Joules, Gant, Kate Spade New York and many more. Last minute essentials can be found at Boots, M&S or WH Smith.
Need to grab a bite? Pick up fresh, organic produce from Sourced Market, or pop into Pret a Manger, Chop’d and Benugo for the usual grab-and-go favourites. If you have time to sit in, then there’s Le Pain Quotidien, The Gilbert Scott or why not oysters and champagne at Searcys – the longest champagne bar in Europe. For the kids, Carluccios, Prime Burger and St Pancras Brasserie all offer a kids menu to fill hungry tums. Find out more about shopping at St Pancras International here.
If you haven’t discovered it yet, head towards Regent’s Canal for the Coal Drops Yard shopping district. Here you’ll find over 50 shops and restaurants in a gorgeous alfresco setting.
