London St Pancras is the best railway station in Europe. It is also called St Pancras International because of the Eurostar trains to France, Belgium and Holland. A travel centre asked passengers about their opinions on Europe's stations. There were questions on the ease of access, cleanliness, connectivity, friendliness of staff, and platforms. There was also a question about the number of days station staff went on strike.

St Pancras is the only UK station in the top ten. Zurich Central and Leipzig Central were second and third. Five of the top ten stations were in Germany. They included Berlin, Frankfurt, Hamburg and Munich. The travel centre commented on the beauty of St Pancras. It was built in a gothic style and opened in 1868. It said St Pancras looks like it is "from another world". It goes to great destinations in Europe and has a good mix of shops, restaurants and services.
