Kings Cross Area Guide
King’s Cross is an exemplar of successful regeneration. Its well-publicised facelift has transformed this area into one of London’s most exciting places, buzzing with creative businesses, arts students and people enjoying its excellent bars and restaurants. With a rich and diverse history, the 67-acre canal-side site is a celebration of design, culture and innovation; and perfectly positioned to connect businesses across the capital and beyond.
Meeting of Minds
King’s Cross has long-standing links with some of the most influential names in the arts and continues to boast one of the world’s most exciting cultural scenes today. Home to Central Saint Martin’s, the British Library and Thomas Heatherwick’s Coal Drops Yard, the area remains a hub for game-changing art and design. And some of the most pioneering and highly desirable workspaces are within its reach.
In Good Company
With some 19 new or fully refurbished buildings becoming available in 2019 alone[ML@LH1] , King’s Cross boasts a thriving business community and counts some of the world’s most forward-thinking companies as its residents. Google famously handpicked King’s Cross as the base for its UK headquarters, while The Guardian, Universal Music, LVMH, Nike and Havas will all be basing their businesses there.
Out of Hours
Set within some 26-acres of parkland, communal squares and open spaces, King’s Cross is far from the average business district: an impressive list of big-name shops, bars and restaurants have made this one of London’s most vibrant areas. A foodie’s paradise, street food collective KERB serves up ‘seriously exciting lunch fare’ from Wednesdays through to Fridays. And a growing list of new names continues to draw the crowds well beyond the working day: this summer, for example, alfresco terrace bar and restaurant Parrillan, the brainchild of Barrafina, will open its doors in Coal Drops Yard overlooking the Regent’s Canal.
With the Capital’s best-connected train and underground station within its grasp, King’s Cross can be accessed via six underground lines and two national mainline stations. Also home to Eurostar at neighbouring St Pancras, King’s Cross links London with Paris, Brussels and beyond into Continental Europe.
