St Pancras' Church, London

4.1
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.
The 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.

  • A very impressive looking church in the middle of King's Cross with looks of aesthetically looking building in a mixture of Neo-classical and Greek Revival. The most eye-catching part of the architect...  more »
  • Very odd in a church garden (see photos). Massive structure and very impressive. Exterior is Dirty and in disrepair. Worth a walk around.  more »

  • Great spot to park it has limited parking and it's best to book in advance. If your only parking for a couple of hrs it's not worth the cost as the price is the same £18.50 so best park for the day.
  • Interesting old church in central, went inside and the atmosphere had a good vibe to it. There’s cool statues outside but nobody was inside so couldn’t get to see it. Do visit this place, liked how it was open to anybody from the public!
