London Walk: St Pancras and King's Cross - a Discovery
Tuesday 08 October 2019

From gasholders and a canal, to Victorian granaries and coal drops, the new kissing roof, two very different but equally beautiful stations, a splendid visitors’ centre, cellars once stuffed with beer barrels, the excellent Sir John Betjeman statue, a provocative sculpture and finally London’s answer to New York’s High line – this part of London has it all.   Following Andrew Davies’ September lecture on the St Pancras and King’s Cross area, on Tuesday, 8th October he will lead us on two walks around this regenerated area, with an hour’s break for lunch (at your own cost). 

Walking c. 500 yards in the morning and c. 800 yards in the afternoon.

Make your own way to the John Betjeman statue on the Upper Concourse at St Pancras International Station, where the Eurostar trains come in and opposite the Champagne Bar.  Walk towards the large Dent clock on the back wall.
