Reopened in 2007 by Her Majesty the Queen, following an £800 million transformation, St Pancras International’s Victorian, neo-gothic splendour stands today as a centrepiece for a transformed Kings Cross.
With the area home to London’s Knowledge Quarter and with tens of millions of visitors and passengers each year, St Pancras is one of London’s central railway terminus and an iconic symbol of the UK’s gateway to Europe as the home of Eurostar.
Yet for a station that only narrowly avoided demolition in the 1960s, St Pancras’ future has not always shone so bright. Nor is this century the first time that St Pancras has played a transformative role in London.
