Eurostar celebrates 10 years at St Pancras

Eurostar is celebrating the 10-year anniversary of relocating to St Pancras International.

In the last decade, improvements to station facilities and reduced journey times have seen passenger growth of 25%, from 8 million to 10 million each year.

Throughout 2017, the Eurostar departures area has been upgraded to further improve the experience for travellers to Europe. eGates are now in place to speed-up the security process and the departure lounge will soon welcome a new Pret A Manger and World Duty Free, due for completion early 2018.

As traveller numbers have grown, so has the choice of destinations on offer. A direct service to Lyon, Avignon and Marseille launched in May 2015, and the new service to Rotterdam and Amsterdam will soon provide a seamless connection to the Netherlands.

Eurostar CEO Nicolas Petrovic said: "The move to St Pancras International 10 years ago reduced journey times by over 20 minutes, making Eurostar even more attractive to business and leisure travellers.

"With continuing investment in our trains, stations and service, customers are increasingly choosing high-speed rail over plane to a range of destinations." 

St Pancras International has been voted the nation's favourite station every year since it reopened in 2007, in National Passenger Survey rankings.
