A walk led by Robert Kingham, presenter of the Pagan London series on Londonist's YouTube channel.

The Pantheon of Pancras is a guided walk around the old Parish of St Pancras. It is home to one of the earliest sites of Christian worship in London, and the largest single biomedical laboratory in Europe. It is the location of one of the biggest regeneration projects in Europe; and it has had a long and notorious relationship with the oldest profession. It is the place where Eurostar passengers first breathe the London air, and it has been home to many other Europeans fleeing revolutions and wars.

St Pancras exists on what was the edge of London. It also has attracted those on the edge of society: outsiders who have disrupted time, and space, and the way we see the world. On this walk through Georgian squares, down secluded footpaths and along canal towpaths, you will hear about some of these people, together with the old and new gods that they have deemed worthy of worship.

'A fantastic walk' -
'A wonderfully fantastic journey' - Reverend Mark Lawson-Jones
'A tremendous flair for storytelling' - Rachael Heaton-Armstrong
'An enlightening wander... thoroughly recommended... wonderfully varied' - John Lewis
'Heartily recommended... esoteric layers and cross-references linking in odd but pleasing ways' - Sandra Lawrence
'If you like your history hardcore, granular, absorbing, this is the one for you. Tour leader Robert is a complete natural' - London Historians
'If you want to find traces of the old gods in London - and offer a few pints as libation - I highly recommend a walk with Minimum Labyrinth' - Sue Jones
'Amazing new walk... I heartily recommend Minimum Labyrinth's latest offering... nearly five hours (including pub stops) of esoteric layers and cross-references linking in odd but pleasing ways.' - Sophie Campbell
