The Meeting Place Statue and Frieze

A 9m tall bronze statue of a couple's embrace by the world renowned sculptor Paul Day. Known commonly as 'The Lovers statue', it takes pride of place on our Grand Terrace, and is often the first thing you see when you step off the Eurostar.

The brief for the commission from London & Continental Railways, the company responsible for the restoration of St. Pancras, stated that the sculpture should be romantic, democratic and as iconic as the Statue of Liberty in New York.

H.M Queen Elizabeth II inaugurated the sculpture when reopening the station in 2007.
