Granary Square fountains at night
Kings Cross and St Pancras

Filled with choreographed fountains (1,080 water spouts, operating 8am-8pm daily, and lit in many colours at night), the square’s terracing down to the canal is populated most sunny days. No wonder: there’s a ready supply of students from Central Saint Martins, which in 2011 moved into the building behind- a sensitively and impressively converted, Grade II-listed 1850s industrial building. The square is also home to the House of Illustration – a gallery an education space dedicated to promoting and celebrating illustration.
