Default Great British Railway Journeys: St Pancras to Westminster


Every bit of this programme should be of interest to people here.

Available on ye olde iPlayer for another 6 days at http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00qgzr9
- or if you can't get that, but do have digital satellite and a PVR,
it's on BBC One Northern Ireland in the early hours of Tuesday morning
(though most likely with in-vision signing.)

Having just watched it on iPlayer, I see that version has in-vision
signing too.

(While Michael Portillo points out that the public 'aren't generally
allowed' to visit Big Ben, you can write to your MP to request a tour.
It's well worth it. Details can be found at

Very interesting.

I wonder if it's possible to get any tours of St. Pancras hotel.

Or have the jobsworths over at Health & Safety decreed that it's
"dangerous"?

I haven't watched the programme yet but St Pancras Chambers/ Midland
Grand Hotel is currently in the midst of being renovated and turrned
back into a hotel on the lower levels, with apartments on the upper
levels. I dare suggest the builders wouldn't be wildly keen on umpteen
visitors traipsing through their worksite!

Go down to their sales office and convince them you have the readies to buy
one of the penthouse suites. I reckon that ought to get you a look round...

Probably not now that renovation has started. But it was certainly
possible to take a tour during one of the London Open House weekends a
few years ago. Sadly, I missed it for some reason.

Ditto. Rather annoyed I did now, looking back on it. Oh well.

You could try saying "I tell you what I want, what I really really want".
