One of my favourite websites is A nice cup of tea and a sit down (link in the sidebar). Today I had to go into town and so decided to have a cup of tea in the longest champagne bar in the world at St. Pancras Eurostar station. The cheapest glass of champagne is £7.50p and even during the day you see ladies that lunch, perhaps waiting for a train to Paris for a shopping trip, and business men, indulging in mid-morning drinks. How utterly civilised.
For £2.50p you can have a pot of Earl Grey served in white porcelain, an inexpensive luxury. I love train stations anyway, just like I get excited looking at maps. If, for whatever reason, I cannot travel, then just being near the possibility of it, is enough to stimulate me.
Good tip: today The St. Pancras Grand restaurant opened. If you need the loo, which is luxurious, just say you are at the champagne bar and they will let you in.
