Take A Tour of St Pancras Renaissance Hotel

Sir George Gilbert Scott’s Gothic masterpiece reopened earlier this year as the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel and according to my source S.L. there is a fabulous tourguide who is expert on the history of this Victorian Treasure.   According to the website,  tour guide Royden Stock “knows his stuff, namedropping Victorians like a walking Dictionary of National Biography, and pointing out marbles and paving like a veteran stonemason. His tours take in the generously portioned corridors, meeting rooms and bedrooms of the hotel, all restored to the sumptuous standards the Victorians and Edwardians enjoyed.”

“After years of devoted restoration, the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel is being hailed as London’s most romantic building. Its glorious Gothic Revival metalwork, gold leaf ceilings, hand-stencilled wall designs and a jaw-dropping grand staircase are as dazzling as the day Queen Victoria opened the hotel in 1873.”

Tours can be booked by contacting Royden Stock, Hotel Historian & Tour Guide on 020 7841 3540 or by email on royden.stock@renaissancehotels.com.
