King’s Cross is London’s new creative quarter, home to 67 acres of inspiring businesses and outstanding architecture, destination restaurants and a vibrant cultural scene.
The area’s industrial past has inspired the 50 new and repurposed buildings; the public spaces between them are a mix of parks, streets, squares, and gardens, with Granary Square and its fountains as a heart.
King’s Cross has a rich and colourful past. Its location at the meeting point of road, river and rail has shaped its history. This can be seen today in the old buildings, the layout of the streets, and in the stories of the communities based here. This history is in the fabric of King’s Cross and is a big part of what makes it a special place.
King’s Cross is home to new galleries and performance venues, whilst the streets and squares regularly play host to art installations, concerts, theatre film and dance performances. Recently we have hosted the Donmar and the Shakespeare Trilogy alongside David Bowie’s Lazarus production.
With new eateries and bars opening all the time, there’s something to suit everyone’s taste and pocket. Here’s a taste of the restaurant and bar scene at Kings Cross.
Our ambition is that King’s Cross will be the best managed estate in the UK. A place that is clean and safe at all hours of the day and night. A place that all people will want to visit and enjoy.
