Situated in a Grade I-listed building in the London Borough of Camden, London St Pancras – also known as St Pancras International – is one of the country’s busiest transport hubs. Built in the 1860s, the station takes its name from Saint Pancras of Rome and is well known for its distinctive Victorian Architecture, and its close proximity to another of London’s major stations, Kings Cross. Originally built to connect London with the East Midlands and Yorkshire, the station has undergone several extensive renovations and is now home to cross-country rail services, the London Underground, Thameslink and the High Speed 1 line, which carries Eurostar services through the Channel Tunnel to continental Europe. The station stands close both the Regent’s Canal and the British Library, overlooking Pancras Square – a public space boasting extensive office space, restaurants, greenery and an ornamental water feature.
In 2018 London St. Pancras station is celebrating its 150th anniversary. To commemorate this the Southeastern area of the station has a number of information boards with images compiled from numerous sources including the National Railway Museum giving a glimpse of station life dating back to Edwardian times. If you want to take a look, head over to platform 11.
