Beautiful But Drab Church

This was a magnificent old church but it had a drab and uncared for feel to it. It was built in 1819 but the original went back to the 11th century.

This is a massive church, which has seen its catchment area swallowed up by commercial development. It is now marooned as an anachronism alongside the manically busy Euston Road. The exterior is gloomy and too monumental not to offend the modern eye. The interior is equally large and a tiny congregation for the lunchtime service seemed utterly lost in so... More

I enjoyed the evening service here with the choir and all the liberating prayers but it did feel a bit like a concert.

Whilst staying in an hotel nearby we heard the clock chimes of a bell tower nearby and following the sound found St Pacras parish church. Adjacent to the very busy Euston Road it is surprisingly quiet inside and is a perfect place for thought and reflection. There are regular recitals although not whilst we were there and the crypt is... More

The original was built in the 11th century and more recently completed in 1822 and was based on the Greek Temple of Erectheum in the Acropolis in Athens in Greece. It is a beautiful old building with Greek columns but looked neglected and lost in the surrounding high rise. It was not open and although signs said the garden was... More

Beautiful church from the 1800's, with Greek influence. Nice to read the plaques, walk around and see a bit of history.

As I could not get into the church I went into the Crypt gallery there was a art exhibition on... More

A beautiful church building that fuses the Christian tradition with Classical architecture to stunning effect. The inside of the church is every bit as compelling as it is intriguing (with its Roman forum influence and wooden Christ sculpture), with a parish seems friendly and welcoming (as illustrated by the tolerant and culturally diverse activities advertised just outside the entrance doors)....

Staying close by, we hoped to be able to see the interior of this church, but unfortunately it was Friday, the only day that the church is closed. Consequently, we had to content ourselves with views of the exterior. The building dates from 1822 and is built in a Greek revival style The most unusual features are the Caryatids on... More
