Kings Cross Area Guide

The ongoing regeneration has transformed King’s Cross into an energised transport and cultural hub, offering a lively and stylish lifestyle.

King’s Cross St Pancras and the extensive links it offers across the country, together with the Eurostar connecting you to Brussels, Paris and beyond, make it an ideal location.  You will find a wealth of Victorian architecture against a more modern landscape, you can even access stretches of the Regent’s Canal as well as take advantage of 26 acres of new parks, squares and open space.

In the heart of King’s Cross you will find Granary Square, where a spectacle of 1000 fountains takes centre stage, it’s the perfect place to unwind as well as enjoy a bite to eat with family and friends.  It is also home to Central Saint Martins, the world famous art school.  We would recommend that you visit at lunchtime between Wednesday and Friday so you can take advantage of KERB and sample some of London’s finest street food.

Just off the square is Coal Drops Yard, easily identifiable by the cobbled streets and brick arches, here you will find a surprising collection of emerging brands, well-known stores and an abundance of cafes, bars and restaurants.  As a resident of King’s Cross you can enjoy a wealth of rich and exciting places to dine; for brunch you have to try Morty & Bob’s grilled cheese sandwich, it is something else.  For an authentic taste of Spain, Barrafina is a must – watch the chefs at work as they produce delicious regional dishes.

To see a wonderful programme of live music, including many well-known artists, you need to check out Scala. You should also take a trip to King’s Place; this multi-arts venue offers a glorious mix of entertainment from festivals, to jazz to the spoken word.  The London Canal Museum celebrates the importance of canals to London’s heritage, see inside a narrowboat cabin and also down the massive Victorian ice well.  With a collection of over 170 million items, the British Library is one of the treasures of King’s Cross and one of the world’s biggest libraries.
