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.Put St Pancras' Church and other London attractions into our London trip itinerary maker, and watch your holiday take shape.
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.
St Pancras' Church Reviews
Loved the columns on the portico and statues and the clock tower, only seen from the outside but still worth a look. more »
I was there quite early in the morning so it wasn't open yet but I was able to walk around the church. I quite liked the columns and statues all around the church. There was also a crypt gallery but..... more »
St. Pancras church near Euston station puts on very good lunch time concerts. But there are no toilet facilities to use.
Fancy building and extremely quiet once inside. You would not believe you are in the busting Euston Sqaure area...great place for events and church services! My son performed his first solo in the school choir...great setting!
