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.
