St Pancras New Church

Churches and Cathedrals

St Pancras New Church is a tranquil, stately Greek revival church set in the heart of one of the busiest areas in London. Unfortunately, due to the amount of pollution this location brings, the usually pristine colour of the Portland stone has been turned into a dirty grey version of itself.

However, don't let that put you off- this church is still well worth a visit- especially to be overwhelmed by the sheer beauty of the carytid figures, and its stark contrast with the surrounding areas. This church is one of the most important 19th century churches in England.

It was built in 1822 by father and son team, William and Henry Inwood, who were both enthusiasts of Athenian architecture and architects working nearby. In fact, its design is based on the Erechtheum on the Acropolis. St Pancras New Church's long galleried interior and carytids visible on the exterior of the church are not only dramatic, but also representative of classical Greek styles. Originally taller than they are now, these haunting figures had a middle section taken out so they could fit under the roof they were intended to support!

As with many churches in London, St Pancras New Church also has a crypt, which is often used by artists for exhibitions, This crypt has served as an air-raid shelter in both World Wars, and was damaged during the Blitz in the 1940s. This church is open as place for reflection, or worship and welcomes all visitors.
