Euston Square to Moorgate

Euston Square to King’s Cross St. Pancras

I left Euston Square at the new entrance which is right opposite the UCL hospital. Walking along Euston Road the first major building on my right hand side is the Wellcome Trust headquarters. There is a neon illuminated arm on display in the window.

On the way to Kings Cross station I pass Euston station, the British Library and St. Pancras Chambers.

Here’s the entrance to King’s Cross underground station and one of the new ticket halls.

King’s Cross St. Pancras to Farringdon

Pentonville Road lacks the gloss of Euston Road as does much of the area to the East of Kings Cross.

On the way to Farringdon is a church next to a silver building, a police station, many houses and the home of The Guardian newspaper.

A walk along Farringdon Road gets me to Farringdon tube station.

Farringdon to Barbican

I head along Cowcross Street.

And pass the Grand Avenue which is part of the Central Markets.

After getting a brief peek at the Barbican I reach the station of the same name.

Barbican to Moorgate

The Barbican Estate consists of a number of concrete tower blocks and building built in the 60s and 70s. Unlike many other examples of concrete accomodation the Barbican has character and was recently given Grade II listed status.

I head out of the Barbican Estate and pass the Barbican Art Centre and a few office blocks before getting to Moorgate.
