Railway cathedral

I was recently in London and had an opportunity to visit St Pancras railway station. It is a truly amazing building, a real cathedral of transport. It is now the station from which Eurostar trains depart for the Channel Tunnel and Europe.

  2. That is an awesome picture. The angle really adds to the beauty of the building 🙂

    Unless of course that’s you took that photo, in which case… wow.

    Great texture to that photo.

    Most of us, probably naturally, identify a building from its presentation at ground level. This photo invites us to raise our necks and look up.

    Last I saw it, ’twasn’t a million miles from the colour you present here. I hear they have washed a hundred years of smut from it.
    You’d have to say it wouldn’t be out of place in Bavaria nor having a chunk of it mushed into some brides face.
    For myself I like Kings Cross far better -less Harry Potter- and think the BL wall to be an improvement.

    St Pancras is one of my favourite buildings – both the Midland Grand Hotel and also the cavernous train shed – Victorian grandness at its best. That’s a great shot of it too!
