King's Cross may best be known for King's Cross and St Pancras stations, but there is much more to the area than trains and platforms. Regeneration in the 1990s has seen the area flourish. The bars and pubs range from traditional to achingly hip, and the restaurants feature everything from British to Ethiopian cuisine. There are a host of other things to do as well, with outstanding clubs, music venues and museums nearby. All of which makes King's Cross a destination in its own right.
