St Pancras Station

King Cross St Pancras Station with its beautiful design and architecture.
The station is in fact three stations: a single Underground station – King’s Cross St Pancras – and two overland rail stations,
St. Pancras station and King’s Cross station. It links six London Underground lines – Circle, Piccadilly, Hammersmith & City,
Northern, Metropolitan and Victoria. This makes it the biggest interchange on the London Underground, and one of the busiest.
