London St Pancras was designed by William Barlow in 1863, and building began in 1866.
The red brick, Grade I listed Gothic front façade - created as part of a competition in 1865 - is one of the most recognisable features of London St Pancras International today. This became the Midland Grand Hotel - designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott, and now houses the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel.
Today, the station (owned by HS1 Limited) has been restored and renovated, with high quality, modern retail sensitively fused with Victorian architecture.
Features include the Barlow shed and roof, the John Betjeman and Meeting Place statues, the famous Dent clock, the eastern arch leading to the hotel forecourt, and a ground floor level full of high spec, retail spaces - a wealth of contrasting locations, all under one roof.
