St Pancras station has long been an iconic landmark on the London landscape. The neo-Gothic spires and multi-coloured brickwork of the Midland Grand hotel and the awesome span of the station's train-shed have made it one of the capital's most distinctive monuments. Simon Bradley traces the history of the station, introducing us to the men behind the architecture, and looks forward to its future as home of Eurostar services to the continent. The Wonders of the World is a series of books that focuses on some of the world's most famous sites or monuments. Their names will be familiar to almost everyone: they have achieved iconic stature and are loaded with a fair amount of mythological baggage. These monuments have been the subject of many books over the centuries, but our aim, through the skill and stature of the writers, is to get something much
more enlightening, stimulating, even controversial, than straightforward histories or guides.
