Round and round the garden: a circular park has opened in a King's Cross gasholder

Isabelle Aron

A new green space has opened in an unlikely spot in King's Cross – an old Victorian gasholder on the edge of Regent's Canal. The Grade-II listed frame has been restored and the space has been turned into a public park, aptly (if unimaginatively) named Gasholder Park. The structure used to be part of the largest gasworks in London and was originally where Pancras Square is now, until it was dismantled in 2011. It's since been relocated, spruced up and the park is now officially open - so next time you're in the area and - let's be honest – probably waiting for a delayed train, take a break from the busy platforms and hide out here instead.

Take a look at these five great autumn park (and pub) walks in London.
