What’s filmed with us?
We've managed thousands of shoots in our stations and on our property. Below you will find just a few examples of the projects we have assisted.
Warner Brothers wound the clock back nearly 100 years when they transformed London King's Cross into a World War I station over one weekend in 2016. A full day's preparation was required to take the station back to 1918, with period signals, offices and signage built.
The Imitation Game
London King's Cross was sent back to World War II when The Imitation Game filmed in the station in 2013. The production took over one platform for the shoot, bringing in a period train and filling the platform with background artists in period dress.
Paddington and Paddington 2
Both Paddington films shot at London Paddington firstly in Autumn 2013 and again in Winter 2016. The first film used large camera cranes and constructed a lost and found office on Platform 1, and even brought in stunt pigeons! The sequel kicked off the film's finale with two specially charted trains running side by side out of the station.
I Give it a Year
I Give it A Year, the 2013 romantic comedy from Dan Mazer, filmed over two nights in the romantic London St. Pancras International, using the Grand Arcade, Renaissance Hotel forecourt, and the Eurostar platforms.
The locations team working on the fourth series of the award winning Downton Abbey chose London St. Pancras International to shoot a key scene involving Lady Edith and her love interest, Gregson.
London King’s Cross is synonymous with the world famous Harry Potter films. The Philosopher’s Stone, The Chamber of Secrets and The Deathly Hallows from the J.K. Rowling series filmed extensively at the station, where a permanent tribute of the famous platform 9 ¾ has been erected in their honour.
The Bletchley Circle
London St. Pancras International was the location of choice for the period drama The Bletchley Circle, with the Production building a departure board to hide the Eurostar trains, and bringing in vintage cars and extras in period costume to take this magical station back to post-war times.
Skyfall train launch event
To mark the release of Skyfall on DVD and Blu-ray, the East Coast Skyfall branded train was launched at King's Cross Station by the stars of the film, with international press attending the event in February 2013.
The infamous T-mobile flashmob commercial went viral in 2009 and triggered plenty of imitations around the globe. Sam Taylor, Head of Advertising at T-Mobile at the time said: "When planning our shoot we were really keen for it to take place at a recognisable and iconic venue so London Liverpool Street station was an obvious choice."
The third part of the commercially successful franchise, The Bourne Ultimatum, was filmed at London Waterloo back in the Autumn of 2006. The sequence took several days to shoot and employed some novel techniques to avoid busy commuters disrupting takes.
