London is constantly evolving and the area around King’s Cross is a fantastic example of urban regeneration.
Explore the transformation of an area once industrial and one of the most polluted in London into a vibrant quarter with shops, offices, schools and art spaces.
Discover the Victorian railway station known as the cathedral of the stations and marvel at its magnificent Gothic architecture. Admire the numerous works of art that adorn St Pancras and see how some of the Olympic rings have been recycled.
We will visit the St Pancras Hotel, built in 1873 and renovated in 2007 under the watchful eye of English Heritage. We can have a cup of coffee or tea in the Booking Office Bar & Restaurant, once the busy ticket hall of the station, or we can finish up the day with a bite to eat in a pub built in the space formally used as the parcel sorting office at King’s Cross station.
