“Britain’s path to a future after empire”

St. Pancras Railway Station in a London borough reopened in 2007 after extensive renovation. The railway station first opened in 1868 with what at the time was the largest single-span arch roof in the world. As befell many exuberant examples of Victorian architecture in the mid 20th-century, the train station was threatened with demolition but ultimate saved. The renovated rail station re-opened to the public as St. Pancras International in 2007, connecting the British Isle to the European continent via the Channel Tunnel.
