King's Cross

an extraordinary piece of London is taking shape

King's Cross Journeys

A two day family festival from 11am to 6pm, on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th September, celebrating the gritty history of King’s Cross.

The story of King’s Cross began in the Victorian era. A time of great change for Britain, when King’s Cross hummed with trains, freight an industy.

Join King’s Cross as it explores its past and be plunged into a gritty Victorian experience. With live workshops and installations, King’s Cross Journeys will introduce you to the characters who were a part of its past.

With everyone from chimney sweeps and Beadles to Clairvoyants in sideshow tents and street magicians on hand to immerse you in their world, you will learn about life amongst the freight hub and enjoy surprises and spectacles along the way.
