St Pancras Clock Tower Apartment

We recently stayed in an extraordinary apartment inside the clock tower of London's revamped St Pancras Station. The apartment is right beneath the clock and there's a ladder in the loungeroom leading, Hugo-style, to the timepiece. Below are some pics (and a here's link to the AirBNB booking page if you're in the market. Peter, the owner, is a fascinating guy and the perfect host).

The large loungeroom with 60 ft (?) ceilings - perfect place to tackle jet lag
and dream on a new book idea.

Skylight in kitchen ceiling in case you need to check the time.
Books everywhere! The best private book collection I have ever seen. A lifetime of reading.

View out to the revamped square in front of Kings Cross Station
Lots of places to escape with a book or hide and write. Kids are welcome, too.
Some of my faves and many I've always meant to read but haven't.
And when your stay ends, you can slip downstairs and jump on the Eurostar to Paris or Brussells.
We didn't but I recommend you do. Very 007.
More adventures soon – a day in the Jardin Du Luxembourg with kids!
