Hammersmith & City Line Walk – Day 3
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.
Pentonville Road lacks the gloss of Euston Road as does much of the area to the East of Kings Cross.
I head along Cowcross Street.
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.
