Or happy St David’s Day!
Today is the feast day of the Patron Saint of Wales, St. David. From commemorative parades through to singing and food festivals, the people of Wales will be marking this special occasion across the country in their masses.
If you feel like tipping your hat to the Celtic teacher whilst you’re in the station, why not stop to buy some daffodils at Isle of Flowers, or drop by Fortnum & Mason’s for a spot of Welsh rarebit and afternoon tea?
Book a table here. Their Welsh Honey range is pretty good too.

Tomorrow is National Cake & Bun Day and with very little encouragement needed, we are well on board with marking the occasion in true St Pancras fashion.
Located on our Grand Terrace, Benugo Espresso Bar is not only home to experts in cutting edge coffee techniques but they also have their own bakery, creating fresh tantalising treats every day.
So we can think of no better an excuse than to stop in for a coffee and a Chelsea bun. Or a slice of chocolate fudge cake. Or an apple & blackberry crumble tart. There’s too much to choose from!
What will you go for? See their selection here.

So we know it’s not even spring yet but London Fashion Week A/W 15 has already got us wishing for autumn as we can’t wait to try some of the trends we saw strutting down the catwalk at Somerset House.
From rollnecks to checks, to indulgent velvet and all shades of red, there were plenty of looks to lust after.
We especially loved the folk feel of the Burberry catwalk with lots of fringing and suede, and the suited-and-booted collection from Paul Smith, both of which we’re betting will popular with our commuters!
If like us you’ve been inspired by LFW and you’re itching for your next fashion fix, pop in to Whistles at the station and check out their fashion forward distinct pieces.
We’ll also be keeping an eye on the Eurostar terminal next week for all those fabulous fashionistas making their way over to Paris for the final Fashion Week instalment – oh la la!
