Considering it used to be an important Medieval borough, which ran from Oxford Street all the way north to Highgate, it must be something of a blow that St Pancras has not only lost its status as a borough, but it has also been overshadowed by nearby King's Cross. Still this doesn't make the area any less important as it is now home to one of London's most important, and most glamorous travel hubs. Once a mainline overground station in its own right, in 2007 the station was merged with King's Cross mainline rail to become the terminus for the Eurostar after the train's original terminus at Waterloo was deemed offensive to French visitors as it marks their greatest defeat against the British.
It may be a rather elaborate scheme to bury a hatchet after almost 200 years, however the new terminus has put St Pancras back on the map again and it has helped to regenerate the King's Cross area nearby, which has had a somewhat sleazy reputation for much of the 20th century. Set in a stunning, Grade I listed building, often dubbed 'the cathedral of railways', which is an impressive example of Victorian Gothic architecture, it is a grand sight for any visitors to London to see on arrival, however, inside the terminus the station couldn't look more different, with a sleek, contemporary makeover and a selection of bijou shops. With elegant offerings at Cath Kidston, Oliver Bonas and Thomas Pink, and a selection of eateries (and even a market!) to impress visiting gourmands serving cupcakes, galettes and artisan chocolate, the station is actually the best place to shop in the area and a great place to pick something up before you head abroad. That's not to say that the surrounding area doesn't have anything to offer.
On the contrary, the area now has a fantastic range of restaurants, pubs and galleries, which have sprung up since the Eurostar arrived. Sartorial Contemporary Art offers cutting edge contemporary paintings with bold themes and The Crypt gallery in St Pancras Church offers art in a very atmospheric and slightly creepy locale. When it comes to food, you will be spoilt for choice; The Gilbert Scott is a Marcus Wareing restaurant with devastatingly good food and Camino Bar & Restaurant offers tempting tapas and traditional Spanish dishes.
Nearby you can visit the British Library, which holds over 14 million books and runs an events and exhibition programme throughout the year. St Pancras Old Church and Gardens on Pancras Road is also worth a visit for its quirky charm and you can see the grave where Mary Goodwin (who would later go on to write Frankenstein), met her poet lover, Percy Shelley.
If you prefer something a bit livelier, The Scala and Mondo Water Rats nearby hold gigs by up and coming bands and club nights, so you can indulge your cultured side in the day and live it up at night.
Aside from the area's very good links to Europe, you can also catch the Piccadilly line from King's Cross Station to Heathrow Airport; the Victoria line to Victoria Station for the Gatwick Express and the Circle Line to Paddington for the Heathrow Express, so the area is very convenient for international visitors. Servicing six of London's tube lines, from King's Cross Station you can literally reach anywhere in London.
