Luton Airport to King’s Cross Station Taxi Service
Luton to Kingâs Cross Station Taxi – Luton to Kingâs Cross Station Taxi Service – Kingâs Cross area is one of the most newly redeveloped places in London. It includes the most famous station in Britain, mostly known as the Kingâs Cross St Pancras Station. Its reputation comes from its central location and the amazing interior and exterior architecture, turning the station into a real London landmark. Also, it is within walking distance from Euston Station, another transport hub. Kingâs Cross station was opened in 1868 and now is one of the busiest in London. It was designed by William Henry Barlow, Englandâs railway engineer and it is said that at those times 6000 men worked day and night for 4 years using 100 steam canes and 1000 horses to build the magnificent construction.
It was firstly considered a âgateway to the northâ, because its terminals were making the connection to the lines in the north of the city. Now, Kingâs Cross can be considered a âgateway to Europeâ as the high-speed Eurostar train links London to mainland Europe (Paris, Brussels) and continental Europe. Just a few meters west of Kingâs Cross Station, we can find the St. Pancras International Station. Even though the two stations are operationally separate, they share the King’s Cross St. Pancras tube station and some important routes that secure the interchange between the stations.
Both Kingâs Cross and St. Pancras can be considered London landmarks due to their beautiful architecture and history. The area was previously known as Battle Bridge. Since a statue of King George IV was built by the famous architect Lewis Cubitt in 1836, the surrounding area that includes the two stations changed its name to Kingâs Cross. However, the adjacent station had to be named differently, to avoid misunderstandings. The name St. Pancras was chosen after a 14 years old Christian orphan that was martyred in Rome. His relics were brought in London in the 7th century and still reside in St. Pancras church in Canterbury.
