The new-look St Pancras station, scheduled to open in 2007, is dependent for its success on PFI deals, but promises to be a wonder (although its future magic will be due as much to the wizardry of its Victorian architects, engineers and craftsmen as to their 21st-century successors).
Their tour was conducted by the station manager and, as they climbed the escalator from the lower concourse, the manager pointed to the blue glass wall MacCormac had designed with the artist Alex Beleschenko.
It is a lovely thing, a happy surprise as the jaded tube traveller emerges from the fetid heat of an underground train into the regenerative joys of born-again Southwark.

The first part of the bridge crossing was moving freely, however, as we approached the Embankment side we ground to a halt in a huge sea of protestors.
Eventually we got down the stairways onto Embankment itself and were able to set off down the route of the march.
Our plan was to cross the Hungerford footbridge to join Embankment at the start of the march, but the police had closed it.

 The Crypt: London's Burning by Home
As Spike and Dru emerged from the station onto the grand Victoria Embankment, cool night air rolled off the water in whispered waves, starlight and the bright moon bathing the expansive river in silver.
A station manager had caught Drusilla, thoroughly blood-stained, tossing body parts into the tunnel and making little squeaking noises hoping to entice the vampire mice out of their hiding holes for a meal.
The horrified attendant had been quickly dispatched by Spike who, after a short-lived chase through the tiled corridors, had snapped the man's neck and (much to Dru's amusement) succeeded in pulling the man's head clean off his body with the aid of the downward escalator and a fire axe.

Go to Embankment tube station, which is moderately easy to get to from all directions (or at least equally difficult), go out of the right-hand exit as you come out of the barriers, cross the road and lean on the railing looking contemplatively into the river.
We'll start at 2.30 pm on the Embankment, for some lovely views up and down the river.
I'll borrow a mobile phone and email people who have told me they are coming with the number in case of problems, etc. The next bit we will decide on the day, and partly depends on weather.

There's a good weekday lunch upstairs in the Two Chairmen pub on Queen Anne's Gate, a block from St James' Park tube station.  The landlord tells me that he gets Members of Parliament in, a fact which may add atmosphere.
There you can see the glass case display to mark the Jewish children who came in trains from Hitler’s Germany to England, leaving their parents, and you can admire the roof: after the disgrace of the destruction of classic Euston, this was the first triumph of preserving Victorian station Gothic on the grand scale.
Completely restored, it is a gorgeous miniature palace.  The house is open to the public for viewing every Sunday (except during January and August) from 10.30 a.m.
