This is primarily the Central London terminus for Eurostar services to Paris, Brussels and other northern European cities, and was refurbished for this purpose, re-opening in 2007 (it took over these services from Waterloo Station).
At its northern end there are also platforms for services to the Midlands and, beneath those platforms, a connection with the First Capital Connect (Thameslink) services from Bedford and Luton south to St Albans.
An increasing number of up-market shops and boutiques are opening along the main thoroughfare through the station, which runs below the Eurostar platforms, including a branch of Yo Sushi.
Upstairs next to the Eurostar platforms is a champagne bar, and at the front of the building is the Betjeman Arms pub. It lies near a statue of the poet, author and heritage campaigner, Sir John Betjeman photo, who was instrumental in ensuring the building wasn't destroyed in the 1960s.
