If you are in or around London St Pancras International Station and you have a little time visit the British Library.
It’s right next to the station on Euston Road. In fact if you need the toilet and you’re in the station I’d advise a trip next door. Do what you need to do for free in comfort and close proximity to Shakespeare first folios and other treasures.
The cafe is good and the exhibitions usually worth a look. Of course it’s also a place for serious study but me I’m generally there for the being there, a coffee and to people watch until it’s time for my train back north.
