King’s Cross might be best known for its bustling train stations linking London to other parts of the country, as well as the continent, but a recent host of developments have regenerated the area, with new restaurants, bars and pubs popping up (check out just how much of a transformation King’s Cross has been through here).
There are plenty of other things to do as well, with outstanding clubs, music venues and museums nearby, much-loved green spaces and a pretty stretch of Regent’s Canal, all of which makes King’s Cross an ace destination in its own right. If you’re feeling cultured, pop to the famous British Library which boasts an impressive events calendar packed with exhibitions and talks all year long. Shop at the brand new Coal Drops Yard and, if you end up feeling peckish, wander over to Kerb food market or the restaurants that line Granary Square. We absolutely understand if you need to make a detour to King’s Cross station for your snap at Harry Potter’s Platform 9¾, too. Here’s all the best things to do in King’s Cross.
