A London railway station is the best station in Europe. The station is London St Pancras, also called St Pancras International. It is an international station because of the Eurostar trains to France, Belgium and Holland. St Pancras was named the best station by the Consumer Choice Centre (CCC), which asks passengers every year about their opinions on Europe's stations. There are questions on a survey about ease of access, cleanliness, connectivity, friendliness of staff, and platforms. There is 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 was number two and Leipzig Central came in third. Five of the top ten stations are in Germany. They were Berlin, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Leipzig and Munich. The CCC commented on the beauty of St Pancras. It said: "St Pancras does not just look like a station from another world, it also leads this index as Europe's best railway station." It gave points to stations that went to great destinations on the continent and had a mix of shops, restaurants and services. St Pancras was built in a gothic style and opened in 1868.
