Both Station Levels Train Shed Roof St Pancras Clock
St. Pancras train station was designed by William Barlow in 1863 although construction did no commence until 1866. The station has always been special and has the grandest frontage of any British Railway station, a towering neo-Gothic giant of red brick and coloured stone originally the Midland Grand Hotel. The famous Barlow train shed arch spans 240 feet and is over 100 feet high at its apex, when built it was the largest enclosed space in the world.
The original station
Today following a redevelopment costing £800 million, this extraordinary complex becomes St. Pancras International, the gateway for High Speed 1, the Eurostar accelerated rail service between Britain and mainland Europe.

The original Midland Grand Hotel closed in 1935 and became railway offices known as St. Pancras Chambers. These will now be restored into a 5 star Marriot Hotel with luxury private apartments on the upper levels.

St. Pancras, once considered obsolete and earmarked for demolition, has been given a new lease of life and remains as one of the greatest Victorian buildings in London.
