St Valentine's At St Pancras

From long awaited reunions at Eurostar arrivals, to the excitement of travelling somewhere new, and of course the association with art and music, St Pancras is a unique spot amongst some of London's most romantic destinations.

With Valentine's Day on the horizon, here are some ideas on how you can spend the most romantic day of the year, whether you are a hopeless romantic or a reluctant participant to Valentine's celebrations.

Visit Europe's Longest Champagne Bar

Make it a date, sip on Champagne and cosy into one of Champagne booths at Searcy's St Pancras, Europe's longest champagne bar. Set against the romantic backdrop on the Grand Terrance, you can even capture a snap to add to your Instagram feed.

For something special, the team have specially created a very pretty cocktail called Be My Valentine: Bombay Sapphire London dry gin, Lanique rose liqueur, lychee puree topped up with Searcys Selected Cuvee Champagne.

Treat Passers By To A Serenade

Over recent years St. Pancras has become one of London’s hotspots for public music; being home to two public pianos, the station attracts many amateurs, professionals and celebrities to play the keys.

Whether you fancy yourself the next Beethoven or you haven’t got a musical bone in your body, our pianos are free to use by the public so you can serenade a loved one, or passers by.

For those who prefer to listen than play music, Popchoir will be back performing in St Pancras on Thursday 10th February from 5-7pm to raise money and awareness for British Heart Foundation, starting the romantic weekend early.

Love At First Bite (And Sip) At Carluccios

Celebrate San Valentino, the Italian patron saint of lovers at Carluccios with their new seasoned More To Amore specials and Bole, Sparkling Italian Wine, for £25 (usually £30). This season Carluccios are celebrating the flavours, textures and colours of beetroot, artichoke and blood orange. What better place to catch up with your favourite person?

Kiss Under The 'Kissing Statue'

Paul Day's The Meeting Place statue is one of St. Pancras' most photographed features. Commonly known as the Kissing Statue, the 9m high bronze sculpture is of a couple's loving embrace under the station's iconic train shed roof and Tracey Emin’s 'I Want My Time With You'.
