This photo was taken in the St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel. We stepped inside for a peek and I was drawn to these steps. Regal with just a hint of suspense, don’t you think?
A couple last shots of our home away from home.
KING’S CROSS INTERNATIONAL STATION
King’s Cross Station – this is where we got our photo at Platform 9 3/4 from the Harry Potter books.
I lost count of the times we got on and got off of trains, standing shoulder-to-shoulder, sometimes face-to-face gripping the pole and trying to maintain balance and hearing a friendly, English voice say,
“Mind the Gap”.
The transit map helped us tremendously and we referred to them frequently.
My phone app that counted down the days until this wonderful trip.
Then there are the escalators ~ the very tall and steep escalators that we frequented almost as often as the trains.
These photos were taken during off times as I couldn’t possibly get a shot when it was packed with commuters. We learned to keep to the right as the left side is for people who walk/run/hurry up and down the escalators.
London just loves to show off her beautiful self and Her Majesty is the best photo bomber ever! Im so glad you loved your stay here
More wonderful photos! Love the first one of the mysterious steps! Photographs are such wonderful helps to remember trips like you've been on. You will enjoy them again and again.
