Art and artefacts

Our three icons – the Sir John Betjeman statue, ‘the Lovers’ statue and the Dent Clock – will be a familiar sight to regular visitors to St Pancras International. Certainly in the case of ‘the Lovers’, we invite you to explore the statue close-up. Less well-known is that its plinth carries a beautiful high-relief frieze in bronze, featuring images from the history of the tube and train.

The meeting place

A 9m tall bronze statue of an intimate pose by the world renowned sculptor Paul Day.

The Betjeman statue

Sir John Betjeman was responsible for saving the Station and the Chambers from demolition in the 1960's. In tribute to the famous poet and railway enthusiast an 8.5ft sculpture by Martin Jennings has been designed to celebrate the man and his poetry.

The St Pancras International clock

The famous St. Pancras Clock has been re constructed by the original makers Dent and now hangs  high in the apex of the Barlow shed once more.
