St Pancras' Church, London

4.2
St Pancras Church is a Greek Revival church in St Pancras, London, built in 1819–22 to the designs of William and Henry William Inwood. It was historically often referred to as St Pancras New Church, in order to distinguish it from St Pancras Old Church, which stands some way to the north.LocationThe church is on the northern boundary of Bloomsbury, on the south side of Euston Road, at the corner of Upper Woburn Place, in the borough of Camden. When it was built its west front faced into the south-east corner of Euston Square, which had been laid out on either side of what was then simply known as the "New Road". It was intended as a new principal church for the parish of St Pancras, which once stretched almost from Oxford Street to Highgate. The original parish church was small ancient building to the north of New Road. This had become neglected following a shift in population to the north, and by the early 19th century services were only held there once a month, worship at other times taking place in a chapel in Kentish Town. With the northwards expansion of London into the area, the population in southern part of the parish grew once more, and a new church was felt necessary. Following the opening of the New Church, the Old Church became a chapel of ease, although it was later given its own separate parish. During the 19th century many further churches were built to serve the burgeoning population of the original parish of St Pancras, and by 1890 it had been divided into 33 ecclesiastical parishes.

  • This is one of the first things you see when you arrive at Euston Station. A pretty church that has some beautiful sculptures in the grounds on Euston Road side. Well worth checking out. Even on a wet...  more »
  • Is the Church on the way from Euston station to Russell Square. Rather confused form and exist, the Foundation of the Temple of Greece-style style, six pillars has been built. But part of the Spire is a Romanesque style. It is a mysterious building.

  • Historically important Grade l Listed Greek Revival church distinguished by those solemn and sombre caryatids. Despite the grit 'n grime coating the exterior find a surprising light and airy interior and crypt that hosts exhibitions and events. Mind the toxic miasma spewing from Euston road, hold you breath and spare a worthwhile moment.
  • I was genuinely surprised by this church. The only regret I have is that my visit was curtailed by the need to rush off to catch a train. Impressive without being imposing, it is well worth visiting on its own account, not just to kill time before travelling North. Although, of course, such travellers are welcomed as well.
  • Visibly eye catching exterior but far better clean and receptively serene atmosphere interior. Calm and peaceful attendance assured.
  • Nice architecture, a good stop from the the hustle an bustle......quiet place to contemplate
  • Fun fact, the statues holding up the church were actually casted wrongly and had to be shaved at the shoulders to fit the head hence the proportion is a little stocky

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
