Bristling with spires and turrets, St Pancras Station and the adjoining Midland Hotel form one of the most glorious examples of Victorian Gothic architecture in London. When this book first appeared in 1968, however, their future looked bleak. Its classic account of the buildings' planning, creation and architectural significance gave weight to the campaign, spearheaded by John Betjeman, to save them. Additional chapters in this new edition chart the station's rescue and transformation into the stylish Eurostar terminus.
