St Pancras Old Church and GardensThis site dates back to Roman times – and you can still see a sixth century altar – but the church building has been rebuilt many times, most recently in the 19th century. However, it’s the former church yard, St Pancras Gardens that are of real interest to visitors. It was converted into public gardens to make way for railway tracks in 1877 under the supervision of the author Thomas Hardy, then a young architect. The writer William Goodwin and his wife, Mary Wollstonecroft, are buried there. It was by their grave that their daughter Mary Goodwin, the author of Frankenstein, secretly met her lover and future husband, Percy Shelley, the Romantic poet. You can also see the mausoleum of the celebrated architect Sir John Soane; the dome's design strangely influenced the design of the iconic red telephone box.
