Favorite thing: The statue of poet Sir John Betjeman, made by sculptor Martin Jennings, is located next to the Eurostar platforms of the St Pancras Station. It's a homage of the LCR (London and Continental Railways) to the man who was the driving force behind efforts to save the station when it was threatened by development plans during the 1960's.
