The German Gymnasium


The Gymnasium at St Pancras has an incredible history. The Gymnasium was actually the home of the German Gymnasium Society, a sporting association established in London in 1861, and it was arguably the first purpose-built gymnasium in Britain. It also hosted the embryo British national governing bodies for gymnastics, wrestling, and fencing; and was the location for the first ever National Olympian Games in 1866. The venue now hosts King's Cross Central's marketing suite and visitor centre, featuring a 6m x 3m 1:250 scale model of the 67 acre development. Also on display are permanent exhibitions and information setting out the vision and delivery of the future King's Cross. The German Gymnasium is also an unusual and atmospheric event space available for hire.
