Centred around a bustling railway station, Kings Cross is a lively London district that’s undergone a vibrant transformation. In addition to cultural landmarks, such as the British Library, it’s home to Regent's Canal and an enticing dining and nightlife scene.
Admire the Heritage-listed British Library, then browse the quirky medical antiquities and modern art at the Wellcome Collection. At the historic heart of Kings Cross is Granary Square where barges were once unloaded, with this open space housing hundreds of fountains beautifully illuminated at night.
Stroll through the gardens of St. Pancras Old Church, a Victorian-era landmark home to the mausoleum of Sir John Soane who designed the iconic red telephone box. Harry Potter fans should visit Platform 9 ¾ where you can have your photo taken with the famous luggage trolley embedded in the wall.
Kings Cross is serviced by the King's Cross St. Pancras Underground Station and Kings Cross railway station. Trains arrive from France at the St Pancras International railway station, while London Heathrow Airport is 45 minutes’ drive away.
