St Pancras International has been voted one of London's favourite landmarks and has a rich and colourful history.
St Pancras train station was designed by William Barlow in 1863, with construction commencing in 1866. The famous Barlow train shed arch spans 240 feet and is over 100 feet high at its apex. On its completion in 1868 it became the largest enclosed space in the world.
One of the most recognisable features of St Pancras International today, the red brick Grade 1 listed Gothic front facade was created as part of a competition in 1865, and became the Midland Grand Hotel - designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott, father of Giles, and built between 1868 to 1876.
