St Pancras is an area of London named after a Medieval Parish and Church. Although not officially still called that, the name has stuck mainly due to the recently upgraded International train station nearby.
The area has links to both Charles Dickens who lived in the area and to a young Thomas Hardy (architect and writer), who helped to remodel some of the graveyards in the area in 1857 to make way for the railway.
The area has a wonderful mix of Georgian and modern architecture. With Coram fields at it's heart and the International Train station t it's head, the area is a vibrant cosmopolitan area for visitors to enjoy.
