The Pantheon of Pancras is a new two-part guided walk from the writers of The Thin Veil of London.
The old Parish of St Pancras is home to one of the earliest sites of Christian worship in London, and the largest single biomedical laboratory in Europe. It is the location of one of the biggest regeneration projects in Europe; and it has had a long and notorious relationship with the oldest profession. It is the place where Eurostar passengers first breathe the London air, and it has been home to many other Europeans fleeing revolutions and wars.
St Pancras exists on what was the edge of London. It also has attracted those on the edge of society: outsiders who have disrupted time, and space, and the way we see the world. On this walk through Georgian squares, down secluded footpaths and along canal towpaths, you will hear about some of these people, together with the old and new gods that they have deemed worthy of worship.
Each walk begins and ends at a pub within walking distance of an Underground station. We will provide joining details when you book.
We will be leading the full walk at weekends and splitting it into Parts 1 & 2 on weekdays:
Wednesdays (Part 1) and Thursdays (Part 2): each walk begins at 6.30pm and ends at 8.30pm, with a pub stop half-way.
Saturdays and Sundays (Parts 1 & 2): the full walk begins at 2pm and ends at 6.30pm, with three pub stops along the way.
We suggest that this walk is suitable for over-16s.
