This is a great thread. So many dud links, though. I thought the internet would last for ever?

Here's a photo from my instagram of another Russell Square hotel I like.

The royal courts of justice are fun

They're great, aren't they? They look like Hogwarts or Gormenghast. That high Victorian Gothic revival more-mediaeval-than-the-Middle-Ages aesthetic. Buildings that actually date from like 1400 are almost a letdown in comparison.

I love the sheer vulgar gleeful OTT-ness of St Pancras Station. Also the fact that, at heart, it's a building with a completely utilitarian and commercial purpose - nothing to do with the monarchy or aristocracy, the government or the church like most of our other grand buildings - just a train station with a hotel on top.
