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.
Woman In Black 2
The Angel of Death filmed evacuation scenes in London King's Cross Station for one day in December 2013. A period train was chartered for the shoot, and brought into the station, which was also dressed with many extras and other period detail to evoke 1940's London.
The Imitation Game
London King's Cross was sent back to World War II when The Imitation Game (c) filmed in the station last year. The production took over one platform for the shoot, bringing in a period train, and populating the platform with background artists in period dress.
Paddington (c) filmed at Paddington Station over 2 days and 2 nights in Autumn 2013. They used two large camera cranes, constructed a lost and found office on platform one, and even brought in stunt pigeons! The shoot was a great success.
I Give It A Year
I Give It A Year, the 2013 romantic comedy from Dan Mazer, filmed over two nights in the romantic St Pancras International Station, 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 St Pancras International to shoot a key scene involving Lady Edith and her love interest, Gregson.
King’s Cross station was the chosen location of the world famous Harry Potter films. Both Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (2001) and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002) from the J.k. Rowling series were filmed at the station, where a permanent tribute of the famous platform 9 ¾ has been erected in their honour.
The Bletchley Circle
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.
Sam Taylor, Head of Advertising at T-Mobile says: “When planning our shoot we were really keen for it to take place at a recognisable and iconic venue so Liverpool Street Station was an obvious choice.
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.
