Watch Elton John do a surprise performance at St Pancras station

Isabelle Aron

As a general rule, train stations are usually pretty boring places. Sure, you can people-watch and spend all your money on fancy train snacks from Pret, but then what? But if you were waiting for a train at St Pancras International yesterday then you might have been lucky enough to catch none other than Sir Elton John turn up for a surprise performance in the station.

The gig was short and sweet, with Sir Elton giving a five-minute performance on a new piano he'd donated to the station. It's now open to the public, which means you can go and tickle the ivories too – even if all you can muster up is a one-handed rendition of 'Three Blind Mice'.

Watch his performance:
