Plaque Commemorating St. Pancras, Bordeaux St-Jean Twinning to be Unveiled

You may remember that back in 2014 St. Pancras International twinned with Grand Central Station, New York. More recently in March 2020 we unveiled our twinning a little closer to home with the iconic Bordeaux Saint-Jean station in France.

To mark the partnerships in a more permanent way we thought it would be a great idea to install a commemorative plaque which is to be unveiled this Bastille Day (14th July 2020) on the station's Grand Terrace.

As a nod to the historic significance of St. Pancras, the plaque has been created thoughtfully using British materials and traditional methods from Honister mine in Cumbria, known as England’s last working mine.
