King’s Cross might be best known for King’s Cross and St Pancras stations (plus Harry Potter’s Platform 9¾), but there is much more to the area than travel and train timetables. Recent regeneration has made the area flourish. Bars and pubs in and around King’s Cross 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, much-loved green spaces, popular Granary Square and a pretty stretch of Regent’s Canal, all of which makes King’s Cross an ace destination in its own right.

Swingers West End
When Swingers opened in the City in 2016, it was pretty much a hole in one: 16,000 square feet of 1920s-themed crazy golf in an office block next to the Gherkin. Now that site in Suitsville is getting an even bigger, more outlandish sibling in the former BHS flagship store on Oxford Street. An ode to the English Riviera, the Swingers West End course includes a helter-skelter and big wheel, with beach huts and bandstands – plus lush palms for added ‘Miami Vice’ vibes. Think of your best childhood seaside holiday, then add booze. Lubrication will be provided on-course in the form of cocktails delivered by roving caddies, and you’ll be able to refuel between rounds with street food by Made of Dough, Patty & Bun and Hackney Gelato. Striped blazers and straw boaters at the ready, old sport – we’ll see you on the first tee. RECOMMENDED: The best crazy golf in London.
Venue says: “A West End sibling to the popular crazy golf club over in Aldgate.”
