study walks

King’s Cross and St Pancras

  • Begins: Monday 30 September 2019
    Until: Tuesday 1 October 2019
    (11am-1pm. Meet at 10.50am outside Hatchards bookshop in St Pancras station.)
  • Leader: Andrew Davies

The walk will look at the history and redevelopment of the surrounding area of King’s Cross and St Pancras stations. The classical austerity of one, and the melodramatic Gothic architecture of the other contrast with the once tatty ‘railwaylands’, which have now become the bustling setting for a leading art university, offices and shops. The walk will also include the renovated Victorian Coal Drops Yard and the new bridge over the canal.


Andrew Davies is an author, broadcaster, The Arts Society and National Trust lecturer. Andrew is the author of nine books including The East End Nobody Knows (unfortunately now out of print). He also runs his own walks and talks company called All About London.
