If you fancy visiting a rustic sherry and wine bar, Bar Pepito is the place to go. This hidden gem is the perfect venue for Spanish drink and food, and is situated close to the nearby Granary Square. This magnificent square is the perfect place to explore restaurants, fountains, the canal side and much more! The square has over 1,000 spectacular choreographed fountains and they are all individually controlled and lit. Exmouth Market is also really worth a visit – it is an area of independent shops, boutiques, restaurants and cafes, and unique gift shops.
As always, there’s so much going on this year at St Pancras International. Foodies are in for a real treat with the Grand Terrace (The Curious Pig), and Barzetti – a restaurant downstairs specialising in wood fired pizzas.
The Harry Potter Shop is perfectly located on Platform 9 ¾ at King’s Cross station, where the Hogwarts Express departs from. The shop is full of magical artefacts and wizarding gear such as wands, robes and replicas. You will also have the opportunity to take a photo with the trolley, which is also located on Platform 9 ¾.
