About the Area
King’s Cross is one of the largest and most successful redevelopments in London. Over the past 20 years, what was an underused industrial site has been transformed and rejuvenated with new streets, squares and parks, homes, shops, offices, galleries, bars, restaurants, schools, and even a university.
It’s a vibrant new neighbourhood with a brand-new postcode. The location, the connections, the canal-side setting, the heritage, an exciting cultural scene, a thriving business community, and a strong sense of local community.
King’s Cross and St Pancras stations form London’s major transport hub. Six tube lines give access to all corners of London. Many local buses pick up and drop off at King’s Cross, while intercity and international trains run up and down the country and into Europe.
Many of the capital’s commercial centres and places of interest are within a short cycle or a slightly longer walk.
