Clever how they designed enough diappointment into St Pancras International so that you CAN'T WAIT to leave.

Good point. But have you arrived at Heathrow or Gatwick lately?

EVERY TIME I arrive there it's late.

St Pancras is a delighful station. The closest we've got in the UK to recreating the old halcyon days of locomotive travel.

But I agree completely about the arrival.

Iconic arrivals such as Heathrow need to create a greater sense of arrival to stand any chance of people enjoying it. Heathrow should major more on it's historic equity.

After all, you don't celebrate or have fond memories of the leaving, it's all about arriving.

You don't arrive in Heathrow. You arrive in Great Britain. THAT's the sense of place which is lost.

I like it ... however I now get a thrill when I land and the air is cold. How twisted is that!
