LONDON | The Crypt Gallery is located in the crypt of St Pancras Parish Church and between 1822 and 1854 was used to bury deceased Londoners. It was an air raid shelter during both World Wars and today hosts an ongoing programme of curated contemporary art exhibitions and events which are designed to provoke, question and stimulate contemplation. There’s usually something interesting on and even if the exhibition itself doesn’t interest you, the space is worth checking out on its own.
The passageways, alcoves and arches provide the perfect space for these exhibits and events, and to add to the eeriness of the space, 557 of the original people who were buried here remain in the crypt.
