The parish church of Old St Pancras has long been part of the history of what is now the Kings Cross and St Pancras district, and is at the heart of a part of London that is constantly changing.

It is London’s ancient parish church, witness to the rich and varied stories of this lively part of the city. A building with multiple layers of architecture and history that has been rebuilt many times, but has always remained a temple of the living God in this place.

The Hardy Tree and the Sir John Soane memorial are in the churchyard nearby, together with a memorial to Mary Shelley.
